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.
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.
