They were also said to be defective and of substandard quality, according to the CMIT report.

The reports identified 12 officers, deployed during completion, including three executive district officers (EDOs), responsible for the irregularities and corruption.

In light of the report, Dr Sajad Sarwar and MS Aqeel Khanzada are being suspended while EDO Dr Mukhtiar Hussain has been appointed as Director General Health Punjab. However, all remaining corrupt officers have been allowed to continue in their jobs.
