LAHORE: The father of Hafiz Hunain Bilal, the teenager who lost his life purportedly as a result of corporal punishment, has thrown into doubt the autopsy of his son and appealed to Prime Minister Imran Khan and Army Chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa to provide him justice.
Addressing a presser late Sunday night, Muhammad Bilal made accusations that doctors at Mayo Hospital, in collusion with the school administration, have manipulated the initial post-mortem report.
He noticed that torture bruises at Hunain’s head were not mentioned in the report, adding that doctors wanted to declare the accused teacher, Kamran, as innocent.
Bilal said that if the “government can’t provide him justice then it should bury him along with his son”. He also warned of a sit-in “if denied justice”.
He also appealed to the army chief and Prime Minister to take notice of the situation.
Hunain, who was a student at American Lycetuff, a private school in Gulshan-i-Ravi area, died on Thursday after allegedly being administered a severe beating by his teacher.
According to police, he was “tortured” by his teacher. Quoting his classmates, the police said that the teacher had allegedly done so because “he had failed to memorise his lessons by heart”.
