Pakistani doctor suspended for transporting cow in ambulance

leave a comment »

A Pakistani doctor has been suspended for using an ambulance to carry home a cow he had bought at a local market, health authorities say.

The doctor had taken the ambulance from a rural health centre near the eastern city of Gujrat, in Punjab province.

He was intercepted by police while driving home from the cattle market…

Muneer Ahmad, an official at the provincial health department, said he had been “shocked” by the doctor’s behaviour.

He’s suspended the doctor on the request of the police and ordered an inquiry into the incident.

Dr. Munir was just being frugal, right? And it was a calf not a cow. There still was room for a patient if needed.
