NUJS student Vikas Chaudhary passes away over Holi in tragic accident; RIP

NUJS Kolkata student Vikas Chaudhary has passed away over the Holi weekend.

According to a statement from NUJS vice chancellor Ishwara Bhat, there was no reason to suspect foul play:

An extremely unfortunate incident happened in the afternoon of March 6, 2015 at The WB National University of Juridical Sciences (NUJS) Kolkata where a first year LLB student Mr. Vikas Chaudhary met with an accident during the festival of holi. Students immediately admitted Vikas to AMRI Hospital, Salt Lake where his condition was declared to be critical. Unfortunately, Vikas succumbed to his injuries and passed away in the evening of March 7, 2015 at AMRI Hospital.

NUJS mourns the sudden and tragic demise of Vikas Chaudhary. We express our deepest condolences at his sudden and tragic demise. Vikas was a student with tremendous promise and dedication and in his demise, the University has suffered a terrible and irreparable loss. At this moment, our thoughts and prayers are with Vikas’ family and we pray that they have the strength to bear this bereavement.

After gathering information from the students, the University has at this moment, no reason to suspect any foul play. The University has initiated steps to institute an inquiry to investigate the exact circumstances of the accident. The University is extending necessary cooperation to the concerned authorities. The students have organised a condolence meeting on March 8, 2015 at 19:00 hours in the University premises to mourn the loss of a member of their family.
