At least 200 rotting bodies were found on the roof of a hospital in the Pakistani city of Multan on Friday.

According to social media, hundreds of human body parts were found on the roof of the mortuary of Nishtar Hospital in Multan, after which the government decided to investigate the incident, Geo News reported.

According to sources, dozens of bodies are rotting in the room built on the roof of Nishtar Hospital. On the other hand, according to the news circulating on social media, hundreds of human body parts have been recovered from the roof.

However, no confirmation or denial has yet been given by a government official about the number of agencies.

Adviser to Chief Minister, Punjab, Tariq Zaman Gujjar said a whistleblower tipped him off about the rotting bodies on the roof of the morgue at Nishtar Hospital, Geo News reported.

“I was visiting Nishtar hospital when a man approached me and said that if you want to do a good deed, go to the morgue and check it out,” Gujjar said.

He said that when he got there the staff were not ready to open the doors of the morgue. “To this I said if you don’t open it now I will file an FIR against you,” Gujjar added.

He said when the morgue finally opened and they went in and there were at least 200 bodies lying around. “All Decomposing Bodies” [of both men and women] were bald. Even the bodies of women were not covered.”

Gujjar said that when he asked them (doctors) to explain what was going on, they said that these were used by the medical students for educational purposes.

‘Do you sell these corpses? I’ve asked the morgue authorities.’

Gujjar said he had asked doctors to explain the incident and in response they said it was not what it seemed as these were being used by the medical students for educational purposes, Geo News reported.

“Two of the bodies on the roof were still in the early stages of decomposition. Maggots were everywhere,” Gujjar said.

He said he had never seen anything like it in his 50-year life.

“Vultures and worms were scavenging on the corpses on the roof. Our count showed that there were at least 35 bodies on the roof of the morgue.”

“The bodies should have been given a proper burial after Namaz-e-Janaza, after being used for medical education purposes, but they were thrown on the roof,” Gujjar said.
