PAKISTAN: An octogenarian died in Pakistan after being operated on by a former security guard at a hospital in Lahore who pretended to be a doctor.
Shameema Begum, 80, died on Sunday, two weeks after Muhammad Waheed Butt performed “surgery” to treat her back injury.
“We can’t keep track of what each and every doctor is doing all the time. It’s a big hospital, ”said an administrative official at Mayo Hospital in Lahore, on condition of anonymity.
According to this official, the unknown remains on the type of surgery performed by the impostor in the operating room, where a qualified technician was also present.
