Police claimed on Sunday that Mehran Abro, one of the accused arrested in connection with the mysterious death of final-year medical student, Nimrita Kumari, had conceded that the two were romantically involved.
According to the police officials, Abro said Kumari had discussed the possibility of marriage with him. He also revealed that he rejected a marriage proposal from Kumari.
Reports indicate that the friendship between Abro and Kumari started at least four years ago and the former initially wanted to marry her. Another accused, Waseem Memon, was also interested in marrying Kumari.
Meanwhile, a teacher of Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto Medical University (SMBBMU), Amar Lal, told police that Nimrita was worried over some personal issues but never discussed the cause of her depression.
Police also claimed that they recovered sleeping pills from Kumari’s bedroom and that the deceased used them during her anxiety. Officials said they were still working to identify the exact cause of the alleged suicide or murder.
However, police cautioned that facts would only come out after the final post-mortem report, which could shed some light on the yet-unresolved leads in the mysterious death of Kumari.
According to reports, Nimrita Kumari and Mehran Abro were brilliant students of their class and the latter’s family had also attended the marriage ceremony of former’s brother.
The senior superintendent of police (SSP) for Larkana, Masood Ahmed Bangash, told media that he had been trying to get in touch with the deceased’s family for the past five days but was unable to talk to them.
SSP Bangash further added that the police had recorded statements of the university teachers, employees, and students, besides the hostel provost, in the case.
