Twitter Demands Justice For Alleged Rape & Murder of Nimrita Kumari
Another young life lost in tragic circumstances. A Hindu medical student Nimrita Kumari passed away recently, with rape and murder cited as probable causes behind her death. With some quarters saying that her death may have been a suicide, Pakistani Twitter is having none of it. People have rallied for the departed soul and are demanding that her murderers be prosecuted.
The young final year BDS Student was found dead in Chandka Medical College Hostel Larkana. At first, the case was being brushed aside as a suicide, but then a video surfaced of her wounds, revealing signs of foul play.
Trigger Warning: Grisly details of her alleged murder are given below. Be advised of the extremely sensitive and unsettling media that follows from this point onward.
A Shocking Murder
In the released videos, it can be observed that there is a prominent horizontal slash across her neck from strangulation with a cord. In suicide, there would have been a bruised line across her neck towards her ears from a noose.
The brother of Nimrita Kumari, revealed that there had also been wounds on her arms, etc making it obvious there was foul play involved.

Case of Nimirta isn’t Suicide at All , She was Social Activist and brave Girl,
She was about to Graduate and start house job in Month , No academic stress or failures found recently , No family pressure ,
she belongs to very well off & well educated family , Snatching Own life isn’t easy such As … And Symbol and Mark on throat isn’t showing its suicide .
This seems case of Harrassment, and Pro-Murder
It should be investigated .
Yet another killing of a minority in Pakistan’s Sindh due to forced conversion pressure?

All the evidences pointed to and gathered by her brother and friends indicate a murder. The incident and the crime should be thoroughly investigated. #Sindh government should ensure that the culprit(s) is booked for murder and nothing less. #JusticeForNimrita pic.twitter.com/r5b6BuRFfP

Rest in peace, angel.
What a loss!! Her smile shows she was in love with life.
She can’t commit suicide… it is clearly a murder case.

Here’s #MianMithoo receiving army training so that he can kill more Hindus in Pakistan. This is how he does it
1. Accuse a Hindu of Blasphemy
2. Start a riot
3. Start killing Hindus in the riot
4. Abduct women and convert them
5. Kill children so they cannot grow up to be Hindus pic.twitter.com/GDAZWlx5bg

“The ease with which women are punished for adultery and fornication contrasts with the difficulty that women have in proving rape when it occurs.”
Although under law, medical examination is compulsory for investigating rape crimes, there are often ‘insufficient personnel to carry out the required examinations‘. Women’s Right’s body Equality Now’s report cites;
“In relation to the six jurisdictions in which medical evidence is necessary under the law for a conviction to be secured, the medical examination must be carried out by designated or accredited medical personnel in all of these jurisdictions except possibly Malawi. In only 2 of the 5 jurisdictions, Lebanon and Pakistan, is the required test free. The majority indicated there was insufficient personnel to carry out the required examinations.”
When will Pakistani society say enough is enough. From innocent Zainab to now Nimrita, criminals indulging in sexual crimes and murders ought to be made to fear the law. Unfortunately, we don’t see any hope of it ever happening.
There are even theories that her alleged murderer may be a man of influence, given the audacity required to kill a young girl in a university hostel.
