HYDERABAD: Tariq-ul-Islam, a doctoral fellow at IIT-Hyderabad, who was found dead at HCU campus on Friday, seems to have had a passion towards Jammu and Kashmir politics, as his posts on social networking website Facebook suggests.

A visit to Tariq’s Facebook page suggested that he had strong views on Kashmir and the political situation there.

He had also shared several articles related to Kashmir’s political situation, the ‘threat’ of the National Investigation Agency in the region, and indulged in heated discussions and debates on the topics on the social networking website.

Meanwhile, after the death of the 29-year-old, officials of HCU and IIT Hyderabad  met to discuss the issue.

“The deceased was not a part of University of Hyderabad but was pursuing Ph.D in economics at IIT-Hyderabad. After the incident, a few professors from IIT came to our campus and the body was handed over to them,” said M Sudhakar, registrar of HCU.

While police officials claim that Tariq was an alumnus of HCU, university authorities are unaware of this fact. “This is news to me actually, I have no knowledge of this,” said Sudhakar, when asked if he was an alumnus of the university.
