Swaraj sought a report from the envoy after she was approached by a netizen who informed her about a news
An Indian student, who was allegedly brutally assaulted in Poland and was claimed to have died, has survived the attack, according to External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj.
Swaraj, on Friday night, spoke to the Indian ambassador to Poland, Ajay Bisaria, regarding the assault on an Indian student in Poznan city whose name was not disclosed.
Swaraj sought a report from the envoy after she was approached by a netizen who informed her about a news item in Polish media regarding the death of an Indian student after being severely beaten up.
A netizen named Amit Agnihotri had described the incident on his twitter handle and claimed that the student had succumbed to his injuries. However, it was later clarified by Agnihotri that he has survived the attack and is in ICU for treatment of his injuries. Both Swaraj and Bisaria later confirmed the same.
“There was an incident of beating. Fortunately, he has survived. We are inquiring into all aspects of the incident,” she tweeted. Earlier, she tweeted: “I have just spoken to the Indian Ambassador in Poland and asked for a report. @IndiaPoland”. The Indian envoy replied: “Prelim enquiry suggests student attacked in Poznan tram on Wednesday. Thank God, he survived. Getting details.”
Agnihotri then posted: “Racist issue similar to USA, the person shouted at him and then start hitting.”
