Islamabad: A Pakistani Hindu student of a dental college was found dead in her hostel room in Sindh province media reported on Tuesday.
Nimrita Chandni, a final year student at Asifa Dental College in Larkana district, was found lying dead on a bed with a rope tied around her neck in her room which was locked from the inside.
Chandni belonged to Ghotki, the district which was in the news since Sunday after three cases
against 218 rioters were filed for vandalising properties, including a temple. Protests erupted in Ghotki on Sunday after an FIR was filed against the principal of a local school on the complaint of a student’s father who claimed that the teacher had committed blasphemy. Police said they were investigating the incident but it was too early to say whether it was suicide or murder. The body has been sent for a post-mortem.
Chandni’s colleagues, who repeatedly knocked on her door, said they got worried when she
didn’t open it. The hostel watchman later broke the door open and found her lying on the bed.
Anila Attaur-Rehman, the college vicechancellor, said it appeared to a suicide but police and
postmortem reports would ascertain the cause of death. In a video posted online, Nimrita’s
brother, Vishal, could be seen saying that he had found signs of a cable wire around her neck.
He demanded that the case be investigated
