CS at Services

Two doctors and a nurse of Services Hospital Lahore were suspended because they mistook the Chief Secretary and his daughter for ordinary citizens and left them at the mercy of the staff'd routine dealing. This action is obviously justified.
Those negligent of their duties have no right to remain in service. But it is shocking that while incidents like the one chief secretary faced are common for ordinary people, in their case no action is taken against anybody. Otherwise news of hospital staff being suspended wouild be routine. Doesn't this show the authorities' ruthlessness?
