Another Indian student dies in America, Indian Consulate said police is investigating

An Indian student has died in Ohio, America. The Indian Consulate in New York has said that the police is investigating the matter.

The causes of death have not been known yet.

The student, identified as Uma Satya Sai Gadde, was pursuing his education in Ohio's Cleveland. The Indian Consulate expressed deep sorrow over the loss and extended condolences to the bereaved family. They said the police is investigating the case and assured that every possible support, including facilitating the transportation of his body to India, is being provided to the family during this distressing time.

"Deeply saddened by the unfortunate demise of Mr. Uma Satya Sai Gadde, an Indian student in Cleveland, Ohio," the Indian Consulate in New York wrote in a post with the family in India. All possible assistance is being extended, including to transport Mr Uma Gadde's mortal remains to India at the earliest."

Fatal attacks on about half a dozen Indian students

This year there have been fatal attacks on about half a dozen Indian students.

This incident marks yet another episode in a concerning trend of deaths involving Indian-origin students in the United States. In March, another Indian student, Mohammed Abdul Arafat, went missing from the Cleveland area under mysterious circumstances. His family then received a ransom call demanding payment for his release.

Earlier this year, Syed Mazahir Ali, a student from Hyderabad, was brutally attacked in Chicago, leaving him severely injured. The Indian Consulate in Chicago promptly intervened, offering support to Mr Ali and his family. The death of Neel Acharya, a student at Indiana's Purdue University, and the brutal killing of Vivek Saini in Georgia, sent shock waves among the Indian community in the US.

In February, Indian student Sameer Kamath was found dead, while IT executive Vivek Taneja was fatally attacked.
