KARACHI: The Sindh government has written a letter to the court authorities to initiate a judicial inquiry into the death of BDS student Nimrita Kumari.
Adviser to Chief Minister Sindh on Information Senator Murtaza Wahab had promised a group of protesters in Karachi on Monday that the Sindh government would ask for a judicial inquiry into the death of the girl.
Nimrita Kumari was found dead on Monday night in her hostel’s room in mysterious circumstances. The university administration earlier stated that Nimrita had allegedly committed suicide by hanging herself from the ceiling fan in her room.
However, the brother of the deceased, Dr. Vishal, denied that it was a case of suicide. He said that the marks around Kumari’s neck suggested that she was murdered. He has demanded a fair and thorough investigation into the incident.
Nimrita Kumari’s peers at the university, as well as other people close to her, have recorded their statements pertaining to the case, with the deceased’s brother.
The parents of the deceased, who live in Karachi, had been informed. Kumari was enrolled in the university’s Bachelor of Dental Surgery programme and was a final-year student.
Police, on the other hand, said that they had sealed Kumari’s room and were conducting an investigation in this regard.
