Punjab provincial assembly member Rana Shoaib Idrees on Sunday night allegedly manhandled, slapped, and thrashed a security guard at a government hospital after the guard asked him to leave his gunmen outside the building.

Hospital management claims that PML-N MPA Idrees turned up in the surgical ward along with his armed guards on Sunday night at around 11:00pm.

A guard on duty simply asked the MPA to wait till the doctors completed their round, to which the MPA and his gunmen responded by thrashing them.

When three other hospital guards tried to rescue the hospital employee, they were also beaten up.

Eventually, other people intervened to get the MPA to stop.

Idrees claimed that he was at the hospital to visit a patient and when he was entering into the surgical ward, he was manhandled by the guard.

When his gunmen received the message of maltreatment, they rushed at the spot and helped in saving his skin from the wrath of the guards.

He alleged he was tortured, insulted and he will move a privilege motion in the assembly on this issue.

He denied allegations of having thrashed the hospital employees and counter-accused them of having misbehaved with patients. He said he will “teach them a lesson and set them straight”.

The hospital administration told the media that a fair inquiry into the incident has been ordered.

This was not the first time Idrees has been accused of violent conduct. In 2014, he booked by the Khurrianeal police for thrashing police officials and ransacking a police station to forcibly free men accused of violent crimes. He was eventually acquitted.
