We are one step closer to seeing justice for Nimrita Kumari as the BDS student’s final postmortem report confirms she was raped and murdered. Now the criminal justice system must pin-point the killer.

Following the death of the student from Bibi Aseefa Dental College (BADC), the college administration tried to brush off the incident as a suicide. Suspecting foul play, her brother Dr. Vishal, who is a forensic consultant for Sindh Police, stated that all the signs point to rape and murder, and not suicide as the college is claiming.

Now the final postmortem report of Nimrita Kumari issued by Chandka Medical College Hospital (CMCH) Woman Medico-Legal Officer (WMLO) Dr. Amrita revealed that the deceased was subjected to rape before being murdered.

According to the autopsy report, the victim’s death was caused by suffocation. There was the clear presence of asphyxial signs caused by a ligature on the neck, confirms the autopsy report.

“The ligature marks also tally with the information. Such signs are produced either in strangulation or hanging and are to be ascertained through circumstantial evidence as corroborative at the crime scene by state investigation authorities.”

The autopsy also confirms the final year student was violated prior to her death. The DNA test confirmed the presence of a male DNA profile, indicated by the semen residue on the deceased’s clothes. Furthermore, a vaginal swab tested positive during the autopsy, indicating a forced sexual act.

Netizens now demand that the culprit be caught soon. Nimrita’s minority status further draws light to the need for security for women particularly those belonging to minority groups.

The final year student was found dead in her hostel room on September 16, 2019. The Larkana Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto Medical University’s (SMBBMU) Vice-Chancellor (VC) Dr Aneela Atta Ur Rahman immediately claimed that the medical student had committed suicide.

He made the assumption without letting the police investigate. That is why it is stated that the college administration tried to cover up the murder to prevent damage to their own rapport.
