“My son is my only asset and we have been spending Rs 4-5 lakh on his studies every year. We hope that he completes his course and becomes a doctor,” said a worried Narendra Singh, father of Indrajeet Singh Chauhan, one of the three medical students attacked in Ukraine.

“Indrajeet’s friends informed us about the Ukraine incident on phone and said he is in ICU… and improving. He and his two friends were attacked while they were asleep,” said Singh, who runs a biscuit-making unit in Agra.

Since the news of the incident, the family has been living in anxiety.

“We had a phone conversation with Indrajeet on Sunday but after that, there has been no contact with him. I hope my son gets well and continues his studies,” said Neera Devi, the 24-year-old student’s mother.

According to reports, two Indian medical students were stabbed to death while the third (Indrajeet) was grievously injured in an attack in Ukraine on Sunday.

All three were students at the Uzhgorod Medical College and were attacked by three Ukrainian nationals at around 3am on Sunday.

The deceased were identified as Pranav Shandilya, a resident of Muzaffarnagar, and Ankur Singh, a resident of Ghaziabad. Indrajeet survived the attack and is recuperating at a hospital in Ukraine.

“No one from the government has contacted us yet and we are living in anxiety… concerned about the wellbeing of our son,” said the victim’s father.
