Indian student shot in Kyiv

From bombardments, shelling, and capturing major cities of Ukraine, Russia’s invasion has entered its tenth day. The situation continues to escalate in Ukraine and many Indians are fleeing from the conflict-ridden region to neighbouring countries. Amid the war, an Indian student who was trying to escape from Ukraine’s capital Kyiv was shot.

Identified as Harjot Singh, a student claimed that he has not received any support from the Indian embassy and has been trying to get in touch with them every day. Speaking from his hospital bed in Kyiv, he urged the Indian embassy in Ukraine to evacuate him and assist him with documentation. He further said he hasn’t received any help from the embassy yet despite promising him of evacuating him soon.

Responding to the video, India’s Ministry of External Affairs stated that the Indian government will bear the medical expense of Harjot Singh in Kyiv, Ukraine. The ministry further said the Indian embassy is trying to get an update on his health status but they are facing trouble as it’s a conflict zone.

Harjot Singh sustained multiple injuries due to bullets fired at the car in which he was travelling while escaping the war-hit Kyiv. He said that God has given him a second life and he wants to spend a good time with his family in Delhi.

Harjot Singh, who is pursuing studies in Information Technology, said it doesn’t matter if you send a charter (plane) after death. God has given me a second life, I want to live it. I request the embassy to evacuate me from here, provide me facilities like a wheelchair, help me with documentation, he said.

Harjot added that he tried three or four times but could not board the train. In the end, he decided to hire a private cab. The fares were high. It takes nearly Rs 4,000 on a normal day in Indian currency but on that day they charged nearly USD 3,000, he said.

The incident occurred on February 27 when Harjot and two others were leaving in a cab to the third checkpoint when they were told to return due to security reasons. While coming back, bullets were fired at his car due to which Harjot sustained multiple bullet injuries. The Indian student said he regained consciousness at 10 pm on the night of March 2.

According to the doctors, Harjot was brought to the hospital after nearly four hours. He had lost a lot of blood. Two bullets hit his left leg and a bullet entered his chest.

Rajasthan: Men steal 2 ATMs with Rs 38 lakh cash in Ajmer, video viral | WATCH

According to the reports, the two masked men reached the ATM machine of the Bank of Baroda located in the Sursura area of Roopangarh police station. The robbers then uprooted the ATM machine and stole Rs 8 lakhs from it.

The police are currently investigating the matter and are looking at the CCTV footage to identify and capture the accused.

Two days ago, a similar incident took place in Ajmer’s Arain district, where the masked men uprooted and looted the State Bank of India’s ATM machine full of Rs 30 lakh in cash located at the Power House intersection. Vaibhav Sharma, Additional SP, Rural, said the robbery method in both cases was identical, so it could be the same gang.

Both incidents took place during the night. However, no one has been arrested in connection with both cases of loot so far. The police have launched an operation to identify and nab the culprits.

Earlier this month, a similar incident happened in Odisha’s Nilagiri where 5 to 6 masked men looted over Rs 3.5 lakh from an ATM and customer service point of State Bank of India (SBI) in Balasore district at around 1 pm.
