Pakistani Christians Poisoned 'because of Their Faith'
Eleven Pakistani Christian student nurses were allegedly deliberately poisoned with mercury on Sunday, July 29, 2012, at the Civil Hospital in Karachi.
According to one of the affected nurses, a colleague had made tea for them and after 10pm they immediately fell ill after drinking it.
The nurses were taken to the Civil Hospital's emergency ward and sent back after treatment. They developed complications the next morning and had to be taken to the hospital again.
Three student nurses were in very critical situation two went in ICU and one is on ventilator rest five is now in general ward. All the student nurses were Christians.
Chief Nursing Superintendent Mrs. Nasreen Gill said that a First Information Report (FIR) has been launched against unknown person and added that they are investigating how this incident took place and stated that they will do “a crystal clean investigation.”
Rumors initially suggested that the poisoning occurred as the nurses were drinking tea while their Muslim colleagues were fasting during the Islamic holy month of Ramzan.
