Pakistani woman doctor held for poisoning Afghan girls

Islamabad, June 10, 2012, (IANS)

 A Pakistani woman doctor has been charged with poisoning female school students in Takhar province of Afghanistan, an official said.

The incident came to light after dozens of schoolgirls mysteriously fell unconscious in the province over the past three weeks, Geo News reported Sunday.

At least 11 suspects were arrested, including a Pakistani woman doctor named Gulnaz, hailing from Punjab province, provincial media in-charge Mustafa Rasuli told the Afghan Islamic Press.

Gulnaz was working at a health clinic in Rustaq district, but did not have the required medical certificates.

She also did not have the documents required for a foreign doctor to work in Afghanistan.
