ezs note:  This is an absolute, utter disgrace.  The police and hospital staff in this case should be FIRED, immediately, and authorities should look into the case to see if any additional punishment is warranted.  Especially if you are traveling to Pakistan, see if the local ambassador is following through.  Thanks.
