HYDERABAD – The mysterious case of a Sindh University student Naila Rind, who allegedly killed herself last week in the hostel, has been dramatically solved.
According to details, Hyderabad Police has arrested a lecturer of private college named Anees Khaskheli in charges of blackmailing the student.
Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) in Hyderabad Khadim Hussain Rind has stated that the lecturer made friends with the girl on Facebook.
He tricked her into marriage after which Naila Rind committed suicide when he rejected her. According to police, Anees has had several other affairs as well.
Police will register the case against Anees under charges of murder, cybercrime and terrorism.
You will be surprised to hear that this is also a murder,” DIG Hyderabad Khadim Hussain Rind told a press conference here on Friday.
He informed that the arrested suspect Anis Khaskheli, who is a lecturer in a private college at Jamshoro and 2008 graduate of Sindh University’s English department, would be nominated in the FIR under sections 315 and 509 of Pakistan Penal Code (PPC).
“This crime is Qatl Shibh-i-Amd which means that a human being is exploited so much mentally and physically that they take their life,” the DIG explained, adding that the sections 6/7 of Anti Terrorism Act (ATA) as well as 9 and 13 of Prevention of Electronic Crimes Act would also be added in the FIR.
According to him, Khaskheli blackmailed Naila and refused her marriage proposal.
“They became friends on Facebook and their relation continued for around 3 months,” the DIG told.
He explained that the sections of ATA would be inserted in the FIR because the death spread a scare among the students and their parents as the latter stopped sending their daughters to Sindh University and its hostels.
The sections of Prevention of Electronic Crimes Act would also be included because the use of electronic media as the medium of exploiting the girl, he added.
The DIG and SSP of Jamshoro district Tariq Wilayat, who was also present on the occasion, informed that both Naila and Khaskheli had deleted their entire mobile record including the calls, messages, photographs and videos.
“This is the reason the case is taking time because of slow data retrieval,” the SSP said.
Student’s family rejects reports
Heirs of the deceased have brushed aside reports that Naila was interested in someone while her family was planning to marry her to someone else. “She was entirely focused on her education,” said Naila’s elder brother Nisar Rind while talking to a leading English daily.
He criticised a Sindh University Teachers Association official who had made allegations about her personal life. He asked the Suta official to clarify the statement as it was a slur on the family’s honour.
“She was planning to do her MPhil and appear in competitive examination of the Sindh Public Service Commission and then serve as SU lecturer. She was thinking of marrying in near future,” he said.
