Krishna said the Government has sought a report about the case from Indian embassy officials in Australia.
"This is a very very unfortunate incident, which has been reported. And I have asked...we are getting a report from our ambassador. We are closely following it up...monitoring it..and we will see that justice is done," Krishna told reporters outside Parliament.
He said the Government has learnt that a person has been taken into the custody by Australian authorities in connection with the case.
