A Kashmiri youth committed suicide at Vallabh Vidyanagar in Anand district on Friday night, reported the Times of India.
According to police, 21-year-old Safimohammed Thakor hanged himself from a ceiling fan inside his hostel room late on Friday night.
Thakor was doing MSc at Sardar Patel University (SPU). He had taken admission in the first-year MSc program in the zoology department of SPU just before a month.
On Friday night, the student had shut the doors of his hostel room – room number 25 – located in the men’s hostel number two, better known as Nehru Hall. His body was found hanging by hostel inmates.
Meanwhile, the family members of the student alleged that their son has been murdered and demanded an investigation into the matter.
Muhammad Shafi Thokar, father of the deceased, told a local news agency, Kashmir News Observer, that his son “was very intelligent and before three days he called me and informed that his book is going to be published soon. We were shocked when we received a call today morning that your son has been found hanging with a fan.”
“This is murder as he was intelligent in every field, besides he was captain of the volleyball team in the university,” he said.
The family members appealed to the higher authorities to look into the matter and investigate the case thoroughly.
The student was rushed to Shree Krishna Hospital at Karamsad where he was declared brought dead. Police sources said that the student was originally a native of Anantnag. Vallabh Vidyanagar police registered a case.
