Manzoor’s Death: A Suicide or a Homicide?
According to university sources the room was unlocked when the guards and students tried to open the door.

The police administration has taken the body to a morgue for autopsy and the administration has informed the family of the deceased.
The real reason for Manzoor’s death is still not available due to a lack of credible evidence. Further inquiry and inspection shall reveal the truth about his death in due time.
