Dr Mehnaz Marri, the first Cardiac Surgeon from Balochistan, Gold Medalist Cardiovascular Surgeon who completed her medical education from Agha Khan University, passed away on December 25th.
Dr Marri was working as a Consultant Cardiac Surgeon and Assistant Professor in Bolan Medical University, Quetta, Balochistan.
Currently, two theories are in circulation regarding the demise of the surgeon. The causes of death are being said to be either brain haemorrhage or suffocation due to gas leakage.
The passing away of Dr Marri is a great loss to the medical fraternity. She was a figure of inspiration for the youth, especially women. Coming from a small district, Kohlu, where higher education for women is not a norm, Marri struggled every step of the way. After completing her MBBS with a gold medal and house job, she went through with FCPS- I, IMM, and FCPS- II.
Marri got engaged on December 2nd, and was set to get married in January 2019.
