Chandigarh: A 22-year-old MTech student was stabbed to death in Australia. The incident took place during a fight amongst some Indian students, the victim's uncle said on Monday. He added that another student was injured in the incident, which took place on Saturday around 9 pm local time in Melbourne.
The victim, Navjeet Sandhu, was attacked with a knife by another student when he tried to intervene in a dispute between a few Indian students over a rent-related issue, the victim's uncle, Yashvir, said.
"Navjeet's friend (another Indian student) had asked him to accompany him to his house to pick up his belongings as he had a car. While his friend went inside, Navjeet heard some shouts and saw there was a fight. When Navjeet tried to intervene asking them not to fight, he was fatally stabbed in the chest with a knife," Yashvir, set to retire from the Army in July, said.
Both Navjeet and the accused hail from Karnal.
Yashvir said the family received the news of the incident early Sunday morning. Navjeet's friend, who was with him, also sustained injuries in the incident.
"Navjeet was a brilliant student and was to join his family in July for vacations," he said, adding that the family is in a state of shock.
Navjeet moved to Australia on a study visa around a year and a half ago. His father, who is a farmer, had sold one and a half acres of their land to pay for his education, the uncle said.
"We urge the Government of India to help us to bring the body as soon as possible," he said.
