MBBS student from Rajasthan dies of cardiac arrest at Zoram Medical College (ZMC)

A final-year MBBS student of Zoram Medical College (ZMC) at Falkawn near Aizawl died of suspected severe cardiac arrest on Wednesday evening.

The student, Anita Kanwar, hailed from a small village in Rajasthan’s Jodhpur district.
“She would have completed her final exam on Thursday,” Saia Chenkual, a faculty member of the ZMC, said.

Anita’s parents have reached Aizawl, he added.

“Unless the autopsy is conducted, we cannot determine the cause of her death. She, however, appears to have suffered a pulmonary embolism/severe heart attack (cardiac arrest),” Chenkual said, adding that it was yet to be decided whether Anita’s cremation would be done here or the body would be sent back to her village.

Anita dreamt of becoming the first woman doctor from her village, a classmate said.
