KARACHI: An inquiry report, released on Wednesday, pertaining to the threats allegedly made by Tahir Noorani, the superintendent of police (SP) for Gulshan, towards the father of a victim of a hospital's alleged criminal negligence recommended the officer be fired, Geo News reported.

It was reported earlier that SP Noorani had allegedly threatened the father of nine-month-old Nishwa, who was administered the wrong medicine by a private hospital in the metropolis' Gulistan-e-Johar on Sunday, worsening her condition.

Noorani had threatened the baby's father of dire consequences for raising his voice against the medical facility's alleged negligence and, according to a local media outlet, had attempted to force him to "withdraw his demands for action against the hospital".

A first information report (FIR) was filed the same day by the infant's father at the Shahrah-e-Faisal police station, naming the hospital administration as the culprit. It had reportedly mentioned that the medical facility had acknowledged its mistake.

Local media reports had indicated that the child had suffered brain damage since the medicine was to be administered through a drip and not via an injection. Nishwa's hands, mouth, and feet have reportedly been paralysed.
