There has been a confirmed death of an Indian student in Kharkiv this morning. He died in the shelling. The Ministry of External Affairs confirmed it. We now know that the Indian Government is all talks and not really putting much effort into rescuing the stranded students. This person was one of our own. He lost his life even though he had nothing to do with the war. He wanted to save the world by becoming a Doctor. He will be remembered by all of us. Let’s unite and work together to rescue their lives. If we won’t do then why are we even a Human Rights Association? I call out to each one of you 250 members. Take some time from your daily life and work with us. We will guide you and help you. Let’s save India.
We talked to a student who was at the Roman border. His name is Dipak. He told us that he went to the border last night with a few of his friends and seniors. They’ve been there for around 24 hours and are still not allowed to cross the border. Some of his seniors crossed the border and reached Romania. Some members of the Indian Embassy of Romania came to them and talked to them. They assured them that they will be rescued soon. And that they are safe there.
Some leaped in their cars with as much luggage as they could take. Others simply headed straight for the railway station hoping to find a last-minute ticket. All had the same objective: get out of Kyiv before it was too late. As thunderous blasts from Russian ordnance shook the Ukrainian capital on Thursday, a mass exodus was underway. The city’s tube network was packed with evacuees carrying belongings hastily stuffed into bulging carrier bags, wheelie suitcases, and handbags. Outside bus and train stations, people clutched pets anxiously. Others sat on the floor and clapped their hands in prayer.
