Two Indian Medical Students Killed In Ukraine

Two Indians studying medicine in Ukraine were stabbed to death while another was injured in an attack in Uzhgorod, bordering Slovakia, early on Sunday (April 10). An unspecified number of Ukrainians were arrested on the basis of the testimony of the injured student, Indrajeet Singh Chauhan of Agra, who is recuperating in hospital. Pranav Shandilya from Muzaffarnagar and Ghaziabad’s Ankur Singh died after being stabbed by three per sons near Uzhgorod Medical College where they study .”Based on Chauhan’s statement, the Ukrainians were nabbed as they were trying to cross the border,” foreign ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup said. The passports of the students and a blood-stained knife were reportedly found on the suspects. Over 5,000 Indian medical students in Ukraine have been facing security problems since the war with Russia broke out in 2014. Swarup said Shaindilya was a third year student and Singh one year his senior. The Indian embassy in Ukraine’s capital Kiev, Swarup said, was informed of the incident around 11am on Sunday and has been trying to ascertain details from police, university authorities and locals. “The embassy has spoken to the families of the two deceased students. All necessary steps are being taken to complete the formalities for bringing the bodies to India.”
