Dead body of medical student found in Jamshoro medical university’s hostel


JAMSHORO: A third-year MBBS student was found dead at the Liaquat University of Medical and Health Sciences (LUMHS) in Sindh’s Jamshoro district, officials said on Thursday.

According to the details, the student who was only 20 years old was found dead with a gunshot wound on his temple. He was also holding a pistol in his right hand.

Local police reached the site of the tragedy, seized the weapon and sent the body to Liaquat University Hospital’s city branch for a post-mortem examination.

LUMHS Vice-Chancellor (VC) Dr Bikha Ram, while speaking to the press, said that the case was an apparent suicide which was committed while the deceased boy’s roommate had gone out to attend an event; however, an inquiry committee comprising the hostel provost, director of student affairs, warden and the campus director had been formed to ascertain what exactly happened.

Jamshoro Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Tauqir Naeem said that although the death seemed like a suicide “on the face of it”, investigations would be carried out to confirm facts.
