An illegal Indian immigrant has died in a Ukrainian hospital due to meningitis after he was detained at the country's western border with Slovakia.
Twenty-two-year-old immigrant, whose name was not disclosed, was detained by the Ukrainian border guards on the border with Slovakia, according to ITAR Tass.
He had very high temperature and the border guards provided him with first aid and admitted him to the local hospital in Mukachevo town, where he died of meningitis, it said.
