Polio drama: 9 more arrested for attacking Peshawar hospital

  • A case has been lodged against dozens of people while raids are underway to nab them

Medics at Lady Reading Hospital said most of the children brought there were fine.

The campaign was suspended after a large number of people staged a protest demonstration and resorted to violence following reports that a large number of students had been brought to hospitals after they were administrated polio drops.

As the panic spread, Edhi ambulances were called in from nearby districts to shift children from the reportedly affected areas of Peshawar to different hospitals, causing a huge rush of kids there.

Despite assurances from the authorities that the anti-polio vaccine was completely safe, enraged residents broke down the main gate and set fire at the Mashokhel Hospital in Peshawar. The spokesman of polio eradication in Pakistan, Babar Atta, said on Tuesday in a tweet that police have lodged an "FIR against 12 individuals who were behind the Peshawar Polio Drama". Moreover, Chief Minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) had taken notice of the incident and directed to launch investigation into the matter. The committee chaired by Dr Gul Mohammad Khan includes Shahbaz Khattak, Dr Ikramullah, Dr Anwar, Dr Bawar Shah and Dr Muhammad Shafique.

He said a man who initiated this rumour has been arrested.

The EOC officials said that the campaign has been suspended keeping in mind the safety and security of polio workers.

He added: "Doctors also said the children did not suffer any reaction from the vaccine".

In a video message, he said batches of the vaccine administered to children in Peshawar were thoroughly examined and checked in laboratories and found safe for consumption in all respects.

He requested the media to avoid speculating before the real cause of the children's affected health is determined by medical experts.
