Allegedly, no ambulance was provided to the student from the university even when he asked for it
His friend’s car was also stopped from entering and Inam lost his life because he wasn’t taken to the hospital in time.
My junior from comsats 2nd semester just died because of heart attack in university and while he was having heart attack our university didn’t bring ambulance and not only that they didn’t even allow friend’s car to enter university and take him to Hospital!#JusticeForInam pic.twitter.com/owVG95Ej6Q

Some students said that when they asked teachers for help they were shown indifference from the faculty
Apparently when asked to help, a teacher responded by saying ‘it’s none of their concern’.
(1/2 ) Once incident is also reported as the students asked two teachers to take that boy to a nearby hospital in their private car and they replied "yeh hamara headache nahi hai", Itni sasti zindagi hai?! #JusticeForInam https://t.co/mibVu6bbYe

People think that it’s ridiculous that rules have to be followed even when someone is dying
Really, what’s more important than someone’s life? It’s absurd that just for the sake of abiding a few rules, the university administration let a young life be lost.

Many students all over COMSATS came out to protest
The fact that a university does not provide its students with basic medical needs topped with the negligence shown by the administration really calls for reform and the students of COMSATS took upon themselves to call for it.
Comsats students are now protesting to demand #JusticeForInam, a student killed by a combination of administrative negligence & bizarre restrictions on students' mobility. University administrations need to start being held accountable for their fatal abuse of their students. pic.twitter.com/vIHcCGIyie

They’re angry that they are paying a hefty fee and yet they are not given the best facilities
This incident is causing a lot of frustration among students because even though the university asks for a huge fees, it still fails in delivering proper medical care- a basic need in every institution.
We pay them freaking 90,000 per semester and they were not able to provide immediate medical attention to a student having seizures! I am ashamed to call myself a Comsian now! Today it was Inam, tomorrow it could be one of us. Raise your voice against such people!#JusticeforInam pic.twitter.com/v7MlX4MYZm

Pakistani universities are the biggest scam, taking lacs per year and not giving basic health facilities to the students. What a shame.#JusticeForInam

People want those responsible for Inam’s death to be held accountable
#JusticeForInam was used as people vocalized their thoughts on the matter. A student dying on school premises is a big deal and someone needs to answer for it.
Nimrita in Sindh, Haleema in capital city n now Inam in COMSATS Islamabad loses life. Security deptts of respective uni’s, higher administration must held accountable.For which purpose large amounts of money r collected frm students? Mostly frm lower middle class!#JusticeforInam

Universities these days are seriously exploiting students. This somehow needs to be stopped. We come to study, not to die. #JusticeForInam #COMSATs @ARYNEWSOFFICIAL @ShireenMazari1 @ImranKhanPTI @BOLNewsOfficial pic.twitter.com/GoC95ANxVU

Universities need to be held accountable for gross mismanagement that results in death of students. This young man died in COMSATS because neither uni ambulance was there nor they allowed anyone else to come and fetch him inside campus. This is murder.#Justiceforinam

Some even demanded the rector’s resignation
After all, responsibility lies with the person in charge to make sure all operations in the university go smoothly. Such a catastrophe is a sign of weak leadership and poor policies.
We won’t settle for anything less than the rector’s @rqamar resign, so called guards and cruel faculty members who didn’t give a damn about the dying kid, FIRED!

We are deeply saddened by Inam’s death and we pray that he gets the justice he deserves. Educational institutions should be a safe place for the Pakistani youth to gain knowledge and make the country proud. Incidents like these are extremely discouraging and need to be prevented at all cost.
