Doctors’ negligence led to Huma Akram’s death: Report

Lahore: Former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram’s wife Huma Akram died due to the negligence of her doctors in Lahore, an inquiry report has revealed.


A three member enquiry committee formed following the tragic death of Huma in Chennai last month, in its report has concluded that doctors in Lahore were unable to diagnose Huma's problem due to which her condition deteriorated.

The report has also blamed the doctors of keeping Wasim in the dark regarding the health of his wife in order to extract more money from him.

Huma was initially admitted at the National Hospital where doctors failed to diagnose her ailment and her condition deteriorated further. She was then referred to Singapore but developed complications in an air ambulance following which she was admitted to Chennai's Apollo hospital.

Dissatisfied by the Pakistani doctors' line of treatment, Wasim had requested Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani to investigate the circumstances leading to Huma's untimely demise.

The legendary fast bowler would be appearing before the National Assembly Standing Committee on Health next month to apprise it the circumstances leading to his wife's death and doctors involved in the entire episode, The Daily Times reports.

"Dr Nadeem Ahsan, the chairman of the committee, has invited Wasim to appear before the committee," sources said.

It must be mentioned that certain political leaders had complained about the medical facilities in Chennai and charged the Apollo hospital of negligence in Huma's case.
