Coronavirus: 3 AMU PhD students who escaped from a quarantine facility found in Kashmir, 1 still untraceable

The fourth AMU student who escaped from the facility after visiting Taiwan is yet to be traced.

Four Kashmiri PhD scholars of the Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) who was put in quarantine had escaped from the facility under mysterious circumstances. Reportedly, the Jammu and Kashmir authorities have now traced three of the four students who had escaped from the quarantine facility.

Journalist Aarti Tikoo Singh had reported three Kashmiri PhD students of the Aligarh Muslim University, who had travelled to UAE in the first week of March were quarantined two days ago. However, in an act of willful negligence, three students had run away from the medical facility.

On 19 March, Dr Shariq Ali, the Chief Medical Officer at AMU wrote to the Dean Students’ Welfare of the AMU stating that three Kashmiri students had visited UAE from 4 to 9 March and had been admitted to the UHS Isolation Ward at 4:00 pm on 18 March for quarantine. The dean added that all three – Azad Ahmad Wani, Mohammad Iqbal Rather and Bilal Ahmad Rather, who returned from Dubai were absconding since 9:45 pm on 18 March.

Three students had returned from the United Arab Emirates (UAE), while the fourth absconding student Zahoor A Rather had travelled to Taiwan from 15th February to 14th March. However, the authorities have now managed to trace the three students and have been shifted to Health Centers for examination, reported Rising Kashmir.

Following the scare, the Jammu and Kashmir Police, the Central Industrial Security Force and the Railway Police, and also a screening facility near Qazigund on the Srinagar-Jammu highway, had been asked to immediately arrest the four scholars for necessary quarantine.
