Rajouri, 18 May: As unbelievable as it may sound, the district hospital in Rajouri is facing the problem of rats who are literally terrorising the patients getting treated there. A patient by the name of Wali Muhammad was bitten all over his body by rats a night ago. Wali has been receiving treatment at the hospital for the last few days.
After Muhammad’s family members found out about the incident, they alonwith other locals appealed to the health department officials to resolve the serious issue as this was not a first time occurence. Wali Muhammad has a form of paralysis which is why he could not feel the pain when the rodents bit him all over. It was only when the family members saw the rats at work live when they raised alarm.
The family alleges that even after notifying the officials, no corrective measures have been taken.
