Three MBBS students attempt suicide

Mirpurkhas: Three students of a medical college in the city tried to commit suicide on Tuesday after having failed in an examination.

Jazib Nisar Ansari of Jacobabad, Jameel Shaikh of Pano Aqil, and Ayoub Jogi of Thari Mirwah, who lived in a rented house in Adam Town, were taken to a private hospital by friends and neighbours after they took overdose of lethal drugs.

Later they were referred to the Civil Hospital where doctors saved their lives by washing their stomachs.

They were now out of danger, said Dr Ved Parkash.

Mohammed Khalid, a final year student of the same college, told journalists that no official of the college administration had visited the hospital to inquire after the students.

Dr Syed Mohammed Razi, managing trustee of the Mohammed Foundation which runs the college, rejected a charge that the administration had something to do with the students' failure.

The exams had been conducted by the Sindh University, he contended.

About 30 students of MBBS third year had failed due to their own ineptitude, Dr Razi added.

Old Mirpur SHO Bhuromal Khatri said that police would lodge an FIR against the students after recording their statements.

Local leaders of the JSQM, JSM, JST and HRCP held the college principal and staff responsible for the students' failure and suicide attempt.

Several students of the college, office-bearers of NGOs and activists of political parties held a demonstration in the Civil Hospital in protest against the college administration's "indifference to students' problems". Dawn
