By BBN Staff: Earlier this month it was reported that Nishal Sankat, was busted in the United States trying to steal a plane.
Well the matter made headline news in Belize because the accused is the son of Professor Emeritus, Clement Sankat, who is the President of the University of Belize (UB).
UB has since issued a statement, thanking those who have extended support to the senior Sankat as his family goes, “through this extremely difficult period.”
According to the release, the UB President has not been able to speak with his son and the information surrounding his case is at this time limited.
“[They] are still trying to ascertain all the facts surrounding the incident, and his well being,” the statement continued.
The statement added that the President and his family are focused on providing all the legal, mental, emotional and parental support possible to the young Sankat.
“What has occurred acutely underscores to the family the need to be aware of the challenges students face, especially those living away from home and family,” ended the statement.
