Three Indians — Amareshwar Arava, 25, Sai Kishore Balguri, 25, and Nishanth Puttapaka, 23 — have been charged
with Saturday’s attempted murder of Praveen Reddy, an MBA student, in London.
A quarrel between two groups of students hailing from Andhra Pradesh is believed to have led to the attack. Initial reports said Reddy and his friends had a party in the apartment till late.
This was the fourth attack on an Indian in Britain in the last two months. The last three incidents proved to be fatal.
Family gets visas
Meanwhile, Reddy’s father Sudhakar and an uncle have got visas in Chennai to go to London. They will leave for the UK on Sunday night. According to Indian officials, Reddy’s condition continues to be monitored and another surgery may be needed, he said.
External affairs minister SM Krishna had spoken to Sudhakar Reddy on Saturday, assuring him of all help in getting visas.
The external affairs minister also spoke to acting high commissioner Rajesh Prasad, asking him to extend all possible help to the family.
