KARACHI, July 29: Condemning the ‘indifferent’ attitude of a hospital management in Larkana towards the death of 14 children over the past couple of days in the hospital, a children’s rights protection body has demanded that a high-level inquiry is instituted to probe into the tragedy and those found responsible should be brought to justice.

In a statement issued here, the Society for the Protection of the Rights of the Child’s (SPARC) Suhail Abro said that if conditions at the paediatric wards and the ICUs of the hospital concerned were not improved, the heirs of the children were not compensated and those responsible for the children’s death were not arrested, tried and punished according to the law, the organisation would move the court.

He said that following media reports, the SPARC through a fact-finding exercise conducted by its representative body, Child Rights Committee, in Larkana found out that the hospital had two ICUs where because of hot weather it was impossible to stay without the air conditioning.
