First-year medical student, Namrita, who belonged to Ghotki town where a Hindu temple was ransacked recently, was found lying on a charpoy on September 17 with a piece of cloth tied to her neck while her room was locked from inside.

Her family has demanded a thorough probe into the matter. Namrita's brother, Vishal, who is a medical consultant, said that the preliminary checkup showed that she was murdered.
"It was not a suicide, suicide marks are different, I found cable marks around her neck. There are marks on her hand too. The marks are of cable but her friend had said that she found her with dupatta around her neck," Vishal said.
On being asked whether Namrita was facing some problems, her brother said, "No there was nothing like that, I myself had talked with her two days back. She was a brilliant student."
He demanded that the case must be investigated fairly and citizens should extend support the family in order to get justice.
