Victim of the alleged torture by his teachers, Muhammad Ahmed, has finally reached the United States for medical treatment. Ahmed will be treated at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital in Ohio and will come back to Pakistan after he has been completely rehabilitated.
Ahmed was a student at Larkana Cadet College, and due to the excessive torture meted out to him by his teachers, he became mute and paralyzed. His case made headlines after a local news channel reported his story and the Chief Minister of Sindh, Syed Murad Ali Shah took notice of the incident.
According to the latest update provided by Ahmed’s father, Muhammad Rashid, doctors have examined his son and have decided to keep him under observation till Feb 17. After that, his doctor Mike Ritter will decide the course of action and will conduct operations on Ahmed.
Rashid also said that the treatment will take three months to complete, after which the doctors will examine him and clear him for travelling back to Pakistan.
Rashid was teary eyed and said that his son’s treatment was only possible after the local news channel reported his story; otherwise, he did not have the resources to afford his treatment.
Ahmed was brought to the Jinnah Post Graduate Medical College for medical examination by a board of doctors which was constituted on the orders of the Sindh CM. The board declared that Ahmed’s throat had been broken at several places and advised to send him abroad for further treatment.
Strict action was also taken against the teacher who had inflicted such torture on Ahmed.
