LAHORE: Dozen of media persons have been subjected to the horrible torture by doctors in the presence of police at Jinnah Hospital here on Wednesday.
Tension began when media persons went to hospital to cover a demonstration staged by the relative of 60-year-old patient, who died due to alleged negligence of the doctor.
The doctors became annoyed when journalists asked them the reason for the death of patient while instead of answering the question, they started beating the media persons.
According to Geo correspondent Faisal Karim, media persons were invited for talks at the hospitals conference room, where they were beaten again both by the doctors and police.
Faisal said he was also among the journalists, who were also severely beaten by the doctors-turned-rioters.
According to report, hospitals main gate has been closed after the incident.
Meanwhile, Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has taken the notice of incident and formed an inquiry committee.
Given the way that the media lies and makes up stories I wouldn’t be surprised to see this type of rage spread here to the U.S. I think that most people will be in favor of the doctors.

Why, this is a terrible thing to have happen. I hope the doctors are able to get themselves under control sometime soon.
Were the reporters from Beat the Press or Mace the Nation.
I thought this was happening in the US.
First do no harm?
First do no harm?”

First do no harm. Next, beat the living dog sh1t out of reporters attempting to destroy your career for the sake of selling soap
