  • The student needs to pay attention to his surroundings; he can return to India to be with his family and children. It is expensive the other way around.

  • Random attacks are common and occurs whether you are student or not. Report the incident to the police along with the description of attackers. But to ask Indian government for help is not appropriate. The Indian government did not send this student (victim) for study here in USA. Moreover, students are required to have medical insurance by the educational institution whey they study. Be aware of your surroundings and avoid isolated areas and avoid fight if possible but if you see your life in danger, then fight till death.

    • Just thought so. Why bring his family of four to attend his situation; he could fly back and be with his family. Part wants to believe this story, the other tells there is more to the story. Is it one of those Jussie Smollett type of situation? His family appears was immediate in requesting assistance from FM to intercede for their trip.
