Islamabad: A jailed Pakistani doctor, who helped the US track down al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden, has been slapped with murder charge after a woman complained that he caused her son's death during a surgery.






Naseeba Gul, mother of Salman Afridi, a resident of Sipah area in Bara in Khyber Agency, lodged a complaint with the political agent some five months ago, accusing Shakeel Afridi of conducting a surgery on her son when he was not qualified to do so.

She said the doctor, currently imprisoned in Peshawar jail on charges of having links with a banned outfit, was not a surgeon and unlawfully conducted the surgery that resulted in death of her son.

The surgery was conducted in 2007 in his private clinic of Afridi, situated in Bara.

"The case has been registered. Officials have given a report saying that he was not a surgeon. I will have to speak to him to find out the exact circumstances and whether he had indeed done the surgery," Afridi's lawyer Samiullah Afridi said.

The main surgeon of Khyber Agency has told the administration that Afridi was a general cadre doctor and not a specialist surgeon and that he was not authorised to conduct any surgery.
