A large number of girl students held a protest demonstration against the death of a student in the hostel of Government Postgraduate College for Women, Rawalpindi, reportedly after being stung by a poisonous insect.

The protesting students said that 20-year-old Urooj fell sick after a poisonous insect bit her Thursday-Friday night and they informed the warden about the incident but instead of taking her to the hospital she was administered the wrong medicine.

A classmate of the deceased said that Urooj was breathing until morning but later died as she was not administered proper medical treatment despite being in a precarious condition.

Though the students, who are protesting Urooj’s death, asserting that their fellow died of insect’s sting, the college administration is trying to declare Urooj’s death as suicide; another group contends that Urooj had a hole in her heart.

Urooj was enrolled in the BS programme at the college and belonged to Fateh Jang area of Punjab; his body was shifted to District HeadquartersHospital for an autopsy.

While staging a demonstration against the ‘callous’ administration of the college, fellows of the deceased also intercepted the buses being driven out of the institute and demanded justice in this regard.
