Details of student given to family: CM

Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU,  Mar 4: As the Opposition PDP today demanded a probe into the suicide of a Kashmiri student in Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, Chief Minister Omar Abdullah said details of the case have been obtained from Hyderabad police and shared with the family, which resides in Pulwama district of the Kashmir Vallley.
Raising the issue in the Assembly, PDP member Khalil Bandh said, “His (Kamran Mudasir) death has resulted in disturbances in South Kashmir and the Government must ensure measures in this regard…A thorough probe should be conducted.”
He also accused the State Government of ignoring the issue.
Omar informed the House that the details of investigation conducted by the police in the case, have been shared with the family of the deceased.
Intervening on the point raised by Mr Bandh and other PDP MLAs, the Chief Minister said there are some elements in the report, which cannot be made public unless the family gives consent in this regard.
“So, the government is not in a position to reveal the report in the House…If the family wants more probe or wants to reveal the details, I have no objections,” Omar said.
Twenty-nine year old Mudasir, a PhD student of English and Foreign Languages University, had committed suicide by hanging himself in his hostel room in the campus of Hyderabad-based Osmania University, which is housing EFLU, on March 2.
The Proctor of EFLU, Professor H K Vizra, has been booked today for allegedly abetting the suicide of the student.    Police said Mudasir was issued a memo by Vizra on January 29 to explain his “misbehaviour” with a roommate and another PhD student Vasim Salim, who had earlier complained to the authorities about “repeated physical and mental harassment” meted out to him by Mudasir.
