KARACHI, Feb 14: Naseema Labano, a teenage girl of Ubaro town of District Ghotki, who was gang raped, was flown to Karachi late Tuesday night and admitted to Civil Hospital Karachi (CHK) on Wednesday, officials told Dawn. She was brought Karachi on the instructions of Governor Sindh Dr Ishratul Ibad.
According to a senior CHK official, she was brought to the hospital at about 11:30 am and admitted to Gynaecology Ward No.3. “Professor Nusrat Khan, in-charge Gynaecology Ward and Dr Nusrat Shah did a check-up and collected details,” Dr Kaleem Butt, Medical Superintendent of the CHK told Dawn. He said the girl refused to allow the experts exhaustive examinations and did not allow a lady specialist to conduct an ultrasound test.
“She is hardly fourteen years and in immense distress and trauma,” said Dr Butt said and added that a team of psychiatrists would examine the girl on Thursday to bring her out of the traumatic condition that she was undergoing. “The doctors have also decided to conduct more investigations,” he said.
Dr Butt said “we have arranged for her mother, father and maternal uncle to live with her in the hospital as it is psychologically necessary for her revival,” he said.
The hospital administration did not allow the media, particularly TV channels to see the girl saying it would prolong the girl’s traumatic condition of the girl. “We’ll allow the media to meet her soon once she stabilises,” he said.
Meanwhile, Chief Secretary Sindh Fazlur Rehman has ordered the Inspector General Sindh Police to submit a report in three days, about the gang-rape of Kainat Soomro, a thirteen-year-old girl of district Dadu said an official handout on Wednesday.
