 Updated at: 1929 PST,  Wednesday, March 31, 2010
Media persons beaten by doctors at Jinnah Hospital 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 hospitalís 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, hospitalís main gate has been closed after the incident.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has taken the notice of incident and formed an inquiry committee.
