Lahore, June 9 : A shocking development has come to light in Pakistan. At a hospital in Lahore here, a former security guard allegedly posed as a doctor and operated on an elderly woman who has died. The incident is from Mayo Hospital in Lahore, where 80-year-old Shamima Begum died on Sunday. Muhammad Waheed Butt, a former security guard of the hospital, had treated the elderly woman. Mayo is a public hospital, where the administration is running away despite such a huge negligence. Ignoring their responsibility, the administration has said that they cannot monitor what every doctor or any other person is doing in the hospital.

An official of the hospital administration said, we cannot keep up with what every doctor and everyone is doing all the time. It is a big hospital. Interestingly, before the surgery, Begum’s family was also paying the security guard Butt in return for visiting their home and treating the elderly woman to heal her wounds. However, when the condition of the wound worsened and the bleeding and pain increased, his family took Begum to the hospital, where they found out what had happened to them.

According to reports, Begum’s body has been sent for post-mortem to ascertain whether she died due to unsuccessful surgery. Police officials have arrested the security guard and taken him into custody. Lahore Police spokesman Ali Safdar said, the guard has been charged and is in police custody. It was also learned that Begum was not the only patient who was paying Butt for his treatment at home. A Mayo Hospital staff member said, Butt introduced himself as a doctor and also visited the homes of other patients.

A Mayo Hospital employee said Butt was fired two years ago for trying to extort money from patients. Similar stories of security guards working in public hospitals masquerading as doctors and medical specialists have also emerged from other parts of the country, especially from Punjab province. In May this year, a man was arrested at the General Hospital in Lahore for posing as a doctor and extorting money from patients. In 2016, a woman was arrested for pretending to be a neurosurgeon. The woman had been operating with qualified doctors at the Service Hospital in Lahore, the country’s second largest health facility, for at least eight months.
