US: Biden Works ‘Very Hard’ to Stop Attacks on Indian Students

“There is no excuse for violence, certainly based on race or gender or religion or any other factor. That’s just unacceptable here in the United States,” Kirby told reporters here when asked about the series of attacks on students from India and also those from the Indian American community.

“The president and this administration have been working very, very hard to make sure we’re doing everything we can to work with state and local authorities to try to thwart and disrupt those kinds of attacks and make it clear to anybody who might consider them that they’ll be held properly accountable,” Kirby said.

Vivek Saini, a student who worked part-time in a department shop, died in January after being attacked by a drug addict in Lithonia, Georgia. Syed Mazahir Ali, an Indian student at Indiana Wesleyan University, was assaulted in February.

The deaths of at least four Indian American students have been reported in recent weeks.

Akul Dhawan of the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and Neel Acharya of Purdue University died in January, reportedly as a result of excessive drinking and prolonged exposure to cold temperatures at night.

Shreyas Reddy Benigeri, an Indian-origin student at the Lindner School of Business in Cincinnati, was discovered dead in Ohio last month.

Ajay Jain Bhutoria, an Indian American community leader, expressed significant concern over the tragic loss of these students in separate incidents and underscored the urgent need for enhanced safety measures for those pursuing education in the US. College authorities, and local police, must address these challenges promptly, he asserted.

“These incidents understandably worry parents and families in India, and their concerns are shared. It’s crucial to address safety issues to ensure the well-being of Indian students studying in the USA,” he said, adding that the Indian American community unites in calling for improved safety measures and support systems.
