PESHAWAR: MPA Sardar Hussain has said the speaker of the KP assembly has announced to constitute a committee to probe the mysterious death of a nursing student from the Laspur valley of Chitral at the Khyber Teaching Hospital on Oct 10.
Sources told ChitralToday that Nusrat Bibi, daughter of Niat Murad Khan, was admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) of the hospital after she mysteriously fell down from the top floor of the hospital building on Oct 2. She died at the ICU eight days later.
Reports said the student was preparing for her second-year nursing exam while sitting on the top floor of the five-storey building along with other students when she fell down. It was not clear how the Chitrali nursing student fell from the building.
It emerged that the student had failed in two subjects after which she was denied admission in the college and hostel. This might have led her to commit suicide. There are also chances that the female student might have been harassed by someone.
The committee, to be headed by MPA Sardar Hussain, would try to explore facts behind the death of the female student. The MPA said the speaker announced to form the committee after he raised the matter on the floor of the house.
