While post-mortem reports of Namrita Kumari said she was murdered, a judicial commission report said that she had committed suicide, thereby opening up a lot of doubts
Bengaluru: Most of you might be aware that a Hindu girl residing in Pakistan named Namrita Kumari died mysteriously last September.
On September 16, her body was found hanging from a ceiling fan. She was staying at a hostel and was pursuing her Bachelor of Dental Surgery programme from the Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto Medical University.
It was alleged that she was forced to convert to Islam and later murdered.
A judicial commission was set up to probe the matter. And now, the commission has submitted its report, terming her death, a suicide.
In this regard, it submitted a 17-page report to the Sindh Home Department.
Before arriving at a conclusion, the commission also reviewed the police investigations, post-mortem and DNA reports, forensic data available in her cellphone and her laptop and those of the suspects as well.
Furthermore, it said that she was under severe stress as a result of refusal of her marriage proposal by her friend.
Now, in what comes as a stark contrast, in the final post-mortem report of Nimrita published by Chandka Medical College Hospital (CMCH) Woman Medico-Legal Officer (WMLO) Dr Amrita, it was revealed that the victim was sexually abused before being murdered.
The report also added that she fought hard to save her life and there were signs to prove it. Incidentally, her phone had also gone missing but was later recovered by the police.
Now to a greater question: If she had committed suicide, why was her body lying on the bed. Her body should have been found hanging.
A US-based Sindhi foundation has said that, on an average, every year, around 1,000 young Sindhi Hindu girls between the age of 12 and 28 are abducted, forcibly married and converted to Islam.
In the year 2011, around 1200 Hindus escaped from the suffocating clutches of the tyrant-like Pakistan and escaped to India. The BBC reported that they were religiously persecuted and were treated like second-class citizens. For their children, education was nothing but a chimera and even if they went to school, their peers would make fun of their religion, that is Hinduism, mock its practices and mortify them to the core.
