LARKANA: Police on Thursday said that it would be premature to say anything about the death of Nosheen Bukhari, fourth year student of MBBS, who was found hanging from ceiling fan at her room in hostel at the Chandka Medical College a day before.

Larkana DIG Mazhar Nawaz Shaikh and SSP Imran Qureshi told journalists after inspecting the room of the deceased student at hostel-II that forensic report of the girl’s handwriting on her suicide note found in the room would make things clear if she had written the note herself or someone else had forced her to write it.

“I met SMBBMU vice chancellor and interviewed administration personnel, security staff, class fellows, roommates [of the victim],” said the DIG.

He said the forensic evidence of video, documents, mobile data and finger prints had been secured and they would help greatly in investigation.

CMCH medico legal officer Dr Rukhsar Samo said in the preliminary post mortem report of the deceased that the death was caused by asphyxia which was sufficient to kill in ordinary course of nature. Samples of viscera had been taken for chemical examination and their reports would be released later, it said.

Protest over girl’s death

Students and members of civil society took out processions and demonstrated outside Larkana Press Club on Thursday, calling for transparent probe into the death of MBBS student.

The protesters’ leaders Imran Ali Marri, Imran Buriro, Awais Dahani and others condemned the college managers for hastily suspending classes and asking students to vacate hostels through a midnight notification.

Electricity and water supply to the hostels had been suspended but they would not leave the hostels, they said.

They said that it was third such incident in the college and appealed Chief Justice of Supreme Court and Sindh High Court to take its notice.
