SHEIKHUPURA: Sheikhupura police on Friday filed a case against Pakistan Muslim League- Nawaz (PML-N) MPA Arif Sandheela for allegedly assaulting lady doctor Dr Sana Jabeen, Express News reported.
On July 11, Dr Jabeen claimed that MPA Sandheela had mistreated her when she refused to give him medicines for free. She said the lawmaker would frequent the clinic where she works for free medication and had never purchased the required hospital ticket priced at Rs2.
Eyewitnesses and colleagues testified that he never purchased the required ticket.
Teary-eyed lady doctor told the media that “the MPA threw a mobile phone at my stomach and pushed me as well. If this can happen to an educated female doctor, it can happen to anyone. I request the chief of Punjab to remove this MPA from his post because he is harassing people.”
“He always asks for free medicines though it is not his right. Even when he was not an MPA this was his behavior – now that he is a MPA, he blackmails me regarding my position,” she added.
Sandheela denied the incident and termed the allegations baseless.
Sandheela said that the doctor is accusing him of the incident in hope of receiving a transfer.
