Govt given more time to file report in pellet victim’s case

The State Human Rights Commission on Monday granted three weeks more to the government to submit a report about a 16-year-old boy, Zahid Manzoor, whose internal organs had been damaged after the government forces fired a full cartridge of pellets into his belly.

“Also, medical superintendent SMHS hospital will file the status report regarding the medical condition of the boy,” chairperson SHRC Justice (retired) Bilal Nazki said on Monday.

Zahid was returning home after writing his examination when the forces fired at him from a close range at Nawa Kadal area in Downtown here in November this year. 

The boy sustained critical injuries to his kidney and gall bladder. The doctors later removed one of his kidneys and gall bladder to make him stable.

Taking suo-moto cognisance of the news reports about Zahid, the chairperson had directed the government to file a report regarding his injury and had also directed the medical superintendent SMHS hospital to provide free treatment to the injured boy.

A doctor who had treated Zahid at the SMHS hospital had called boy’s injury as the “most dangerous” of all pellet injuries they had treated since 2016.
