    School authorities, without any medical advice, send students for marathons. What advice the Education Ministry has given to schools about getting children participated in running events. Wake up officers and do something about this, so that unfortunate events can be prevented in the future!

    ANOTHER MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE ?

    zaid ali Thursday, 31 January 2013 07:13 AM

    the government and the school should pay at least 5 million to he parents for their negligence in checking the medical condition of the student. This should be an eye opener to parents and teachers who push students beyond their capacity with utter discare.....
