In the footage, which was also shared on the social media platform, Ali can be seen trying to outrun the attackers as soon as he realises something is wrong. The postgraduate student further revealed in the video recording that when he slipped near his house while running away, he was kicked and punched by those men.

He also revealed that they had stolen his phone after attacking him. By the end of the video, he can be heard saying, “Please help me, bro. Please help me.” Throughout the video, Ali was visibly distressed and panting. This news has raised major concern among netizens over the safety of Indians in the United States.

Last week, another Indian student, Shreyas Reddy Beniger, was found dead. He was a student at the Linder School of Business in Ohio while his parents live in Hyderabad. Before this, a man from Haryana, Vivek Saini, was hammered to death by a homeless man in Georgia on January 16.
