Aasim’s flatmate and senior Muhammad Ilyas claimed he had been barred from appearing for the semester examinations due to short attendance. “On October 15, he was diagnosed with dengue, so he went home for a few days. When he came back on November 8, he was informed that there is a possibility he would not be able to take the exams. A month later, it was confirmed in the final list that he would have to repeat the semester. I am not sure if this is why he left,” he was quoted as saying by The Kashmiriyat.
