LAHORE: The emergency department of the Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC), which was closed for three days, is expected to reopen from tonight.
Sources from the hospital informed that all the repair work has been completed in the emergency ward and ventilators and other equipment have been installed in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
A violent clash that erupted between hundreds of lawyers and doctors on Wednesday had left 4 patients dead and 25 injured when the charged lawyers stormed into the PIC and broke windows of the emergency ward and several vehicles parked nearby.
In this regard, at least 29 more lawyers have been arrested raising the number in the incident to 81. The FIR against the accused lawyers was lodged in Shadman Police Station in Lahore a day after the attack.
