Speaker, Kavinder Gupta Thursday directed the Government to investigate the cause of death of a female Teacher at Sonwar recently.

The Speaker gave the directions after the issue was raised by Engineer Abdul Rasheed in the House, an official spokesperson said this evening.

Rasheed said that the said teacher didn’t die of natural cause but there is a strong suspicion of her being poisoned.

He said that the family members of the teacher also protested recently demanding inquiry in the matter. He demanded that government should order an impartial inquiry into the incident.

Notably, family of a 43-year-old woman of Chanapora, who died on May 15 under mysterious circumstances, on Wednesday staged protest here demanding impartial probe into the case.

The family of Saika Shafi Wanchoo staged a sit-in at Press Enclave and accused police of failing to undertake investigation properly in the case.
