SHC allows judicial inquiry in Nimrita death case
KARACHI (92 News) – The Sindh High Court on Wednesday allowed a judicial inquiry into the Nimrita death case. It is pertinent to mention here that Nimrita was a BDS final year student of the Bibi Aseefa Dental College Larkana, who was found dead in her hostel room on Sept 16. Larkana’s District and Sessions Judge had sought the high court’s permission for a judicial inquiry into the matter. The Sindh government had written a letter to the District and Sessions Judge, Larkana requesting the judicial probe. The family of Nimrita has refused to lodge first information report (FIR) against the alleged murder case of the girl. The matter related to the death of Nimrita has been become complicated instead of solution. The large amount worth of million rupees reveled in the accounts of deceased. The security agencies expressed reservations over the money transactions. It was reported that the circle of investigation also extended after shocking revelations. The family did not register any case against the alleged murder even repeating instructions by the police department. The family demanded to probe from the high court instead of the session court. However, the police also recorded the statement of Gita. As per the grieving family, they had rejected Nimrita’s postmortem report because it was not based on facts, in the similar context, they were unwilling to lodge an FIR, fearing to be meted out injustice in the case. Police have been keeping two students – Mehran Abro and Wasay alias Ali Shan Memon — in custody for several days for interrogation. During the investigation, Abro admitted about the romantic involvement with Nimrita, but the former’s parents refused to marry them off which kept the deceased girl in a state of constant depression and anxiety. Nimrita was also reported to be seeing a doctor to cure her depression. Nimrita was very closed with Abro’s family and she used to stay at his friend’s place on the weekends. More than 70 witnesses have recorded their statements in the case. According to Advocate Ishrat Lohar, a judicial probe could not be held unless an FIR is registered. Advocate Ali Palh, however, differs with Advocate Lohar, insisting that a judicial inquiry could be initiated before registration of an FIR. “The bereaved family wants a high court judge to head such an inquiry,” Advocate Palh said.
