QUETTA: Police on Thursday registered a case against the principal and a clerk of the Government Girls Degree College, Muslim Bagh, on the orders of the Balochistan High Court (BHC) in connection with the suicide by a 17-year-old student of the college.

Saqiba Hakim Kakar, a second year student, had committed suicide after the college administration repo­rtedly refused to send her examination form to the intermediate board, depriving her of a chance to appear in the examination.

A former president of the Balochistan High Court Bar Association, Baz Mohammad Kakar, filed a petition reques­ting the court to order registration of a case against the principal and the clerk. Saqiba’s brother has been blam­ing the two for her death. Justice Shakeel Ahmed Baloch of the BHC accepted the petition and asked the inspector general of police, the home secretary and the education secretary to appear in court.

The judge expressed anger over not registration of an FIR and ordered police to do so immediately.
