LAHORE

The management of University of Management and Technology (UMT), Lahore, has expressed deep grief on the death of Muhammad Moeen, a student of BBIS, at the university.

 The management termed the death an awful tragedy. A press releases issued by the varsity’s Department of Public Relations read that Muhammad Moeen Manzoor was enrolled in third semester of degree programme BBIS. Moeen was a brilliant and hardworking student who respected his teachers and friends. He had been suffering from cardiac problems, which was not a secret to some of his classmates.

A UMT spokesperson said that the day Moeen breathed his last, he was not fasting, and his semester exams had already concluded on June 11, two days before his death. Moeen along with his friends was walking outside library building when all of a sudden he fainted around 2:18 noon. The university medical team rushed to provide him with first aid while he was brought inside the varsity and 1122 was called to send an ambulance, which then took Moeen to Jinnah Hospital where doctors pronounced him dead due to heart failure.

It is to be noted that owing to summer vacation, UMT is already closed and only final exams of students are being conducted.

The entire UMT community is deeply saddened over the loss of precious human life. Earlier, a good number of students, teachers and university staff left Lahore for Shakargarh where they attended his funeral and offered Fatiha for the departed soul. Meanwhile, UMT Rector Dr Hasan Sohaib Murad expressed his grief over Moeen’s death.

He phoned his parents and expressed his condolences to them. Dr Hasan said Moeen Manzoor was a hardworking and brilliant student who obtained martyrdom while on path to knowledge.
