Mortal remains of Qurat ul Ain were received by her family in Bon Dialgam, Anantnag.
Quratul Ain, a fourth-year MBBS student from Jammu and Kashmir’s Anantnag district, died on Saturday after suffering a seizure at the hostel of Tairunnessa Memorial Medical College (TMMC) in Bangladesh’s Ghazipur district.
The 22-year-old girl was “suffering from epilepsy for a long time, but she stopped receiving medicine recently,” the report quoted a doctor as saying.
Following her death, the family and former J&K chief ministers Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah had sought External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj’s help to bring back Ms Quratul’s body.
Meanwhile, Swaraj had also tweeted, “The family should not worry. With the efforts of Indian High Commission in Dhaka, the mortal remains of Ms. Quaratul Ain MBBS student from Anantnag are on board and the flight has taken off. My Officers are waiting at the Kolkata Airport to receive her mortal remains.”
