In a startling revelation, Rawalpindi Urology Hospital’s former medical superintendent and his wife were found involved in purchasing oxygen — a key tool for the treatment of coronavirus patients — on an inflated price causing a loss of millions to the national exchequer, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Saturday.

Sources said that former MS Rawalpindi Urology Hospital Dr Khalid Randhawa gave a contract to Ghani Gasses Company for providing oxygen on an exorbitant rate of Rs77/cubic meter instead of the actual price of Rs57/cubic meter.

Dr Khalid got support from VC Dr Umar and Rawalpindi Urology Hospital Director Finance, the sources further divulged.

It has been revealed that Dr Khalid is now trying to get a consultant’s slot in the hospital to hide his alleged corruption and he has also accelerated his efforts to clear the outstanding dues of oxygen supplies to the contractor.
