The news channel reported that video messages were issued from the student identified as Kashif Raza as soon as he regained consciousness after being admitted to Nishtar Hospital.

The student, identified as Raza, had cut his vein in an attempt to end his life after failing a paper but was saved after he was rushed to the hospital.

Raza claimed in his message that he had never failed any of his subjects during his past four years at university. He blamed the teaching faculty for deliberately disappointing him in the viva procedure because some teachers at the university had a personal grudge against him.
