HCJP calls report from DG, FIA on reports of fraud in placing stents in heart patients at Lahore

Islamabad, January 17, 2017 (PPI-OT): The Hon’ble Chief Justice of Pakistan Mr. Justice Mian Saqib Nisar has taken notice of fraud in putting stents in heart patients. The action was taken on reports that few hospitals i.e. Cardiac Ward of Meo Hospital, Lahore and other Government hospitals of Punjab are either putting stents in heart patients even when the same were not required or charging patients at exorbitant rate up to Rs.1,80,000/- for each stent, that actually cost nominal price of few thousand rupees. There were even reports of not implanting stents in patients, while they were charged for stents on fake / bogus Angioplasty, etc.

Taking notice of the issue, the Hon’ble Chief Justice of Pakistan has ordered to call report in the matter from DG, FIA.
