HYDERABAD: Police claimed to have solved the mystery behind the sudden death of a Sindh University student whose body was found hanging from a ceiling fan in her hostels' room.

"You will be surprised to hear that this is also a murder," DIG Hyderabad Khadim Hussain Rind told a press conference here on Friday.

He informed that the arrested suspect Anis Khaskheli, who is a lecturer in a private college at Jamshoro and 2008 graduate of Sindh University's English department, would be nominated in the FIR under sections 315 and 509 of Pakistan Penal Code (PPC).

"This crime is Qatl Shibh-i-Amd which means that a human being is exploited so much mentally and physically that they take their life," the DIG explained, adding that the sections 6/7 of Anti Terrorism Act (ATA) as well as 9 and 13 of Prevention of Electronic Crimes Act would also be added in the FIR.

According to him, Khaskheli blackmailed Naila and refused her marriage proposal.

"They became friends on Facebook and their relation continued for around 3 months," the DIG told.

He explained that the sections of ATA would be inserted in the FIR because the death spread a scare among the students and their parents as the latter stopped sending their daughters to Sindh University and its hostels.

The sections of Prevention of Electronic Crimes Act would also be included because the use of electronic media as the medium of exploiting the girl, he added.

The DIG and SSP of Jamshoro district Tariq Wilayat, who was also present on the occasion, informed that both Naila and Khaskheli had deleted their entire mobile record including the calls, messages, photographs and videos.

"This is the reason the case is taking time because of slow data retrieval," the SSP said.

"Call data obtained from the student's phone established that Anees had been harassing Naila Rind over the past three months," he said.

"Further investigation revealed that the suspect was also involved in blackmailing at least 30 other girls," Rind said.

He revealed that Anees Khaskheli used to record videos to blackmail girls.

Mr. Rind further said that police also found evidence which showed that the girl may have consumed sleeping pills leading to her death.

According to the police, Naila took the extreme step of taking her life over refusal of marriage.

The officials claimed that Naila's family had expressed its willingness to lodge the FIR at Jamshoro police station, adding that

they gave the family both the options of registering the case either on the family's complaint or on that of the state.

Meanwhile, the five-member committee formed by acting vice chancellor of Sindh University to probe the student’s death summoned in-charges of Allama I.I. Kazi central library, Sindhology library, chairman of the department of Sindhi Anwar Figar, Sindh University Teachers Associ­ation (Suta) secretary Arfana Mallah, hostel provost Aneela Soomro and wardens Mahjabeen and Nusrat Talpur.

Acting police surgeon of Liaquat University Hospital, Hyderabad, Dr Waheed Piracha disclosed that according to external examination report of medico-legal officer Dr Samina Rajput, there were no marks of violence on her body.

MLO Dr Samina Rajput had submitted her findings of external examination prepared after post-mortem of Naila’s body in LUH city branch on Sunday night. “Except for marks from hanging on the neck there were no other signs of violence,” he said, adding that viscera had already been sent for chemical examination.

Mr Piracha said that since it had become a high-profile case chemical examination had become all the more necessary for determining the cause of death. It would be premature to say anything about the death till chemical examiner gave his final opinion, he said.

LUH’s medico-legal section sends viscera to chemical examiner in Karachi, which comes under the Sindh health department and usually takes 15 days to give its opinion on chemical examination.

Jamshoro police have not yet completed preliminary proceedings of the case under Section 174 of CrPC, always considered necessary in suicide cases since no one from the student’s family has so far approached police for such legal formalities.

Student’s family rejects reports

Heirs of the deceased have brushed aside reports that Naila was interested in someone while her family was planning to marry her to someone else. “She was entirely focused on her education,” said Naila’s elder brother Nisar Rind while talking to a leading English daily.

He criticised a Sindh University Teachers Association official who had made allegations about her personal life. He asked the Suta official to clarify the statement as it was a slur on the family’s honour.

“She was planning to do her MPhil and appear in competitive examination of the Sindh Public Service Commission and then serve as SU lecturer. She was thinking of marrying in near future,” he said. - SAMAA
