Ganderbal: The veterinarian students at Shuhama branch of SKUAST in Ganderbal boycotted their classes on Friday morning following the “heart attack” of their colleague in the varsity lawns on Thursday evening.
The students were protesting against the university administration for “failing to provide medical aid” to the student, who is in a critical condition.
“A student, Irfan Ahmad, suffered a heart attack yesterday evening. Owing to the absence of ambulance driver, he was taken to SKIMS, Soura in a private cab. His condition is said to be critical,” one of the students told Kashmir Reader.
They said that few months ago, a student died owing to the “lack of medical facilities” in the varsity.
SKAUST Vice Chancellor, Dr Tej Pratab, said that he would look into the issue at the earliest. “I request the students to maintain calm,” he said.
