No action in nursing school case

NAROWAL, Aug 24: The district health department has yet to take action against the principal and cook of a nursing school who have been held responsible for an accident in which nine nursing students were injured.

An investigation has held the nursing school's Principal Fakhra and cook Faiz responsible for the accident, which occurred on July 17. The investigation report, completed almost two weeks ago, said nursing school's driver Zaib did not come to duty till 7:15am on the day of the incident and in his absence cook Faiz took out the vehicle to take students to the school from their hostel.

During the investigation, Zaib said he was not late from duty because 7:30am was his duty time. Faiz said a tyre burst, not his rough driving, caused the accident. He claimed he had a driving licence and could drive properly. Injured students said Faiz used to pick and drop them on the instructions of Ms Fakhra. They said Faiz also used to pick and drop the principal.

It has been learnt the accident was the result of Faiz's rash driving, and the tyre and rim of the vehicle were damaged later to save him from action.

Dr Muhammad Ashraf, executive district officer for health, said he had received the investigation report, which held Ms Fakhra and Faiz responsible for the incident. He said stern action would be taken against them within a week. Dawn
