Nimrita case: Sindh gov't formally asks for judicial inquiry

The Sindh government has written a letter to the court authorities to initiate a judicial inquiry into the death of Nimrita Kumari, a student of the Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto Medical University’s Bibi Aseefa Dental College. 

Adviser to Chief Minister Sindh on Information Senator Murtaza Wahab had yesterday promised a group of protesters in Karachi that the Sindh government would ask for a judicial inquiry into the death of the girl. 

Kumari was found dead on Monday, the university administration had earlier said, adding that she had allegedly committed suicide by hanging herself from the ceiling fan in her room in the university’s hostel. 

However, Nimrita Kumari’s brother said Tuesday that his sister was murdered. Kumari’s peers at the university, as well as other people close to her, have recorded their statements pertaining to the case,

According to the principal of Larkana’s Chandka Medical College, Professor Dr K. Das Dholia, the initial post-mortem report ascertained the cause of Kumari’s death to be suicide.
