A Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) student was found dead in his hostel room on Monday.
Shahmir Asif Bajwa was found ‘unresponsive’ in bed in his room on December 12.
Shahmir was a third year BSc honours student, police sources said.
LUMS administration was informed immediately after he was found and Shahmir was immediately shifted to National Defence Hospital, where the doctors said he had expired earlier during the day.
In a note to students and faculty, LUMS administration said, “It is with deep sorrow that we are writing to share the very tragic news: Our MIMS student and hostel resident Shahmir Asif Bajwa has passed away.”
Initial reports suggest Shahmir died of cardiac arrest.
The hospital said a post-mortem will be carried today.
“Shahmir’s family has been informed and they have requested that their privacy is respected,” the note read. His family reached Lahore from Karachi today as they were unable to earlier due to fog.
