Mystery surrounds death of Pakistani student in London varsity


Nadir Ali, a Pakistani student, was found dead in mysterious circumstances in a university in London on Monday.
According to sources, the administration of Northumbria University, where the deceased student was pursuing masters’ degree in law, appeared to be reluctant to make causes of Nadir’s death public.
Nadir was residing in an accommodation provided to him by the university. Saadat Sethi, his university mate, said that he wanted to know the cause of Nadir’s death. “We have been told that it is a case of sensitive nature,” Sethi added.
He said Pakistani students at the campus were living in a state of fear and the university was refusing to take them into confidence. “There are only few Pakistani students out of the population of around 3,300 international students. The total student population at the university is about 30,000. The administration is telling us it’s a sensitive case but we want to know what happened to our fellow Pakistani student. We want to hear facts about this case and don’t want to be treated like insects,” the grieved friend said.
A spokesperson from the university said, “We have received confirmation that a Northumbria University student died on October 4, 2013. The student was taken to the Royal Victoria Infirmary (RVI) where he was pronounced dead. A report is being prepared for the coroner. His family has been notified by the police and our thoughts are with them at this difficult time.”
