Out of 408 police officers, 263 cleared the test, conducted by UN’s Ms Margaret (Sweden), Mr Vladmir (Russia) and Mr Boris (Denmark).

ADVISER: The adviser to the Sindh chief minister on health affairs, Noman Saigal, has expressed his displeasure over the way house officers are resorting to protest.

He said that problems could be resolved through negotiations.

According to the coordinator of the adviser in Hyderabad, Dr Waseem Shaikh, Mr Saigal contacted him by telephone to ascertain facts regarding the house officers’ protest.

The coordinator informed the adviser that the protest pertained to the non-payment of two-month stipend to the house officers and non-availability of medicines in the OPD and other wards of the Civil Hospital of Hyderabad.

He said the Sindh finance department had not approved the ad hoc arrangement of stipend for the house officers.

He said that a correspondence was going on between the hospital administration and the finance department to resolve the issue.
