SRINAGAR: A Kashmiri girl student reportedly passed away in Bangladesh on Saturday following which PDP President Mehbooba Mufti wrote to external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj to help get her body back home. The deceased student was identified as Qurat ul Ain of Anantnag district. She was pursuing Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) at Tair-un-Nisa Medical College, Gazipur in Bangladesh and was in 4th semester.
Some students have reportedly shifted Qurat to a nearby hospital but she could not be saved. The family members of the deceased student were unable to reach to the Bangladesh which prompted the former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti to requested the outgoing Minister for External Affairs Sushma Swaraj to intervene.
“Dear @SushmaSwaraj ji, Quratul Ain, a kashmiri student has died in Bangladesh. She was pursuing her studies in Tahir Ul Nisa Medical College. Request your help to the family to get her body home,” Mehbooba said in a tweet. The family members of the deceased do not have adequate documents to travel to Bangladesh, reports said.
