Samad flew back to Pakistan on Tuesday after DTC refused to pay for his heart operation, and then terminated his service.
According to information, Samad had worked for the company for seven years and had been charged Dh20 each month by the company under its health insurance scheme. But when doctors told him he needed to undergo a heart surgery, the company refused to help. Samad had been refused travel leave by DTC so that he could have a cheaper operation in Pakistan as the treatment in Dubai would cost him Dh8, 000.
