QUETTA: Two weeks have passed since the Quetta Civil Hospital carnage and so far no proper steps for security have been taken, Samaa reported on Monday.

According to the report, while a team of police personnel has been stationed at Quetta Civil Hospital, no walk-through gates or advanced security measures have been placed.

It further said the hospital had no security check for cars and vehicles that entered the hospital, citing the personnel had not been given the proper equipment.

The main gate still lacks a security check booth for women, who enter the premise unmonitored.

According to the management, there is dire need of at least 100 CCTV cameras, walk-through gates, teams of trained security personnel and a more active role from the government.

"The government should take complete control of the security situation. They should use Intelligence information to catch the culprits and punish them," Medical Superintendent Dr Abd-ur-Rehman Miankhel said.

While on the other hand, locals demand for better protection at public hospitals in Quetta after the traumatic carnage at Civil Hospital on 8th August that claimed 70 lives, including that of 55 lawyers, and left over a 100 injured. --SAMAA
