"In an unfortunate event, three Indian students in Uzhgorod Medical College (Ukraine) were stabbed by three Ukrainian nationals at around 3am in the morning of Sunday, April 10," external affairs ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup said.
外交部发言人 Vikas Swarup表示，“4月10日，凌晨3点左右，乌克兰乌日哥罗德医学院发生一起不幸事件，3名印度留学生被3名乌克兰公民袭击。”
Shaindilya was a third year student while Singh was a fourth year student at the college.
"Based on his (Chauhan) statement, the police apprehended the Ukrainian nationals who were trying to cross the Ukrainian border. Passports/documents of the three Indian students and blood-stained knife were reportedly recovered from the Ukrainian nationals," the MEA spokesman said.
Shaindilya 是乌日哥罗德医学院的大三学生，而Singh 是大四学生。
Swarup said Indian embassy in Kiev was informed of the incident around 11am on Sunday and it has been trying to ascertain the facts from the police, the university authorities and other local contacts.
This is very sad. Locals in Europe and USA confuse North Indians with Pakistanis.
Indian boys need foreign returned tag for better dowry - they don't mind even if it is Pakistan.
candu with time
Medicines is the noblest profession, where earning is substantive. Many family send their children to ex Warsaw country, and China where cost of study is economical, and admission is taken for granted.
When there are so many opportunities for higher studies within India and other safe destinations like Australia, UK, USA, why youngsters are going to violence ridden nations like Ukraine!!
Hope and trust that the other Indian students take care.
Indians crazy about foreign degree,these european universities allow foreign students to write exams in english but their medium of instruction is mainly native language,still Indians go there for study
Some have mentioned USA as an option for study. How silly. Atleast in Ukraine, this is a rare event. In USA, anyone can get shot anytime and it happens every day
People of Ukraine have racial mind set Indian students should not go to such risky nation
Indians become soft target as the government hardly cares. The embassy hardly treats students as humans it's my personal experience with Indian consulate.
Government should take it hard with the Ukrainian part.
