The brutalities against minorities continue unabated in the terrorist state of Pakistan as in another shocking instance, a medical student was found dead under mysterious circumstances inside her hostel room at a college in Larkana area.
Reportedly, Hindu student Namrita Chandani, a final year BDS student in the Bibi Asifa Dental College of Larkana, Pakistan was found dead in her room on Monday. Namrita Chandani was found lying down with a rope tied around her neck while her room was locked from inside.
According to a report in Pakistan-based The Tribune, she hailed from Mirpur Mathelo in Ghotki region and was pursuing medical education at Bibi Asifa Dental College. Reportedly, the college administration tried to pass it as suicide. However, the evidence points in the other direction.
There were signs that she struggled to save her life. Her phone also went missing which was later recovered by the police. Now, several questions are being raised as to why her body was lying on the bed instead of hanging from the rope, as generally happens in the cases of suicide by hanging.
The incident was reported to the police after other hostel inmates found her room locked. They knocked continuously and even shouted her name but Namrita did not respond.
The brother of the victim, Dr Vishal also said that there were signs of strangulation with a cable wire around her neck. He demanded that the case must be investigated fairly and citizens should support his family.
The mysterious death of Hindu student Namrita comes just a day after violence against minority Hindus was unleashed by Muslims from Ghotki, Pakistan, the region where the deceased hailed from. Ghotki, a city in Pakistan’s Sindh province has been known for the persecution of Hindus, who are in minority in Pakistan.
On Sunday, following an allegation of blasphemy against a Hindu school principal, Hindu temples, shops and homes of minority Hindus were ransacked by Muslim rioters. However, later it was revealed that the attack on Hindus was a pre-planned event to cover-up a child abduction incident. The school principal had thwarted efforts by giving refuge to one of the Hindu girls, who was abducted by associates of child kidnapper Mian Mitho.
Mithu is feared by the local Hindus as they accuse him of kidnapping and forced conversions of Hindu girls. The minority Hindus of the area claim that Mithu provides protection to those who kidnap underage Hindu girls and forcibly converts them to Islam before marrying them off to their kidnappers. Further, he also wields his political power to influence legal processes in case families of kidnapped girls decide to go to court.
Mian Mitho was also behind the abduction and conversion of two underage Hindu girls Raveena (13) and Reena (15) from Ghotki in Pakistan’s Sindh on the eve of Holi. The girls were later forcefully converted and married off to older Muslim men.
