First Nimrita, now Nosheen


The tragic death of Nosheen Kazmi, a fourth-year student at Chandka Medical College in Larkana, has left everyone in shock and awe. The deceased’s family claims that she didn’t commit suicide and was instead murdered. A judicial commission is yet to conduct an enquiry regarding the matter.

Meanwhile, protests have been held in various cities to put pressure on the government so that justice is served through an impartial inquiry. It is hoped that the authorities will not disappoint the grieving family and all those who stand for justice. It is vital that the case be adjudicated in a timely manner in order to deter those criminals who are directly or indirectly involved in it. In the case of Nimrita, a Hindu student who was found dead in her hostel room at Bibi Asifa Dental College Larkana, two years have elapsed but the state has failed to catch the culprit. What message is the state giving to all the criminals that roam free?

The law should be implemented in letter and spirit to ensure that female students are provided with adequate security. Otherwise many more girls like Nimrita and Nosheen may fall prey to vicious predators in the future. It is necessary to expose the perpetrators and their accomplices in order to bring about speedy justice for the greater good.
