Initial reports suggest Karachi resident Shahmir died either of a cardiac arrest or of a drug overdose, Superintendent Police (SP) Cantonment Tahir Rehman told Dawn.

A notice issued by LUMS administration said Shahmir was found unresponsive in bed in his room on Dec 12. “LUMS administration was called when efforts to rouse him failed. Shahmir was immediately taken to the nearest hospital (National Defence Hospital) where the doctors pronounced that he had expired earlier in the day,” the statement said.

Shahmir was a third year BSc honours student, police sources said.

The SP said the body will be taken for a post-mortem in order to determine the cause of death.
