Students are protesting and demanding justice for Inam, a 22-year-old student of Islamabad’s Comsats University who died of cardiac arrest on Friday, at the university’s premises.
According to the protesting students, Inam got a heart attack and his fellow students asked the university administration to call an ambulance or arrange a vehicle so the student could be rushed to a hospital. However, he passed away after lying on the floor for about half an hour in a helpless condition.
The protesting students alleged the university administration responsible for Inam’s death. According to the statement issued by a body of the university’s student, “Unfortunately a student of BBA 2nd semester at CU, Islamabad who got low blood pressure and cardiac arrest has died due to unavailability of an ambulance on time, moreover, a private car was not allowed to enter in the university”.
“So-called policies by the management took an innocent life today,” it further added, demanding complete investigation and punishment for all those responsible.
However, through a press release, the university has rejected the allegations of delay, stating that the student had been provided emergency treatment at the university’s medical centre.
“The student suffered from a massive cardiac arrest and was immediately rushed to the medical centre where he was administered emergency treatment by trained medical professionals,” reads the press release.
“After administering emergency treatment, the student was rushed to the National Institute of Health Medical Complex, Islamabad, for further medical treatment. However, the hospital authorities declared the student dead on arrival,” it further added.
“The student’s family refused the postmortem of the deceased student and subsequently the body was handed over to the family.”
The protest has now moved on to social media demanding #JusticeforInam.

We pay them freaking 90,000 per semester and they were not able to provide immediate medical attention to a student having seizures! I am ashamed to call myself a Comsian now! Today it was Inam, tomorrow it could be one of us. Raise your voice against such people!#JusticeforInam pic.twitter.com/v7MlX4MYZm
