Rzeszow [Poland]: An Indian student has been hospitalised after he was shot with a bullet in the capital city of Ukraine, a few days after an Indian student lost his life in the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine.
Speaking on the matter, Minister of State for Ministry of Civil Aviation General VK Singh revealed the information at Poland’s Rzeszow airport on Thursday. “A student from Kyiv was reported to have been shot and was immediately admitted to the hospital in Kyiv,” he said.
The student was trying to escape Kyiv and was wounded in firing, according to the minister. He was reportedly taken back into the city and is in hospital.
“The Indian embassy had earlier cleared on the priority that everyone should leave Kyiv. In the event of war, the gun bullet does not look at anyone’s religion and nationality,” he added.
The students are currently fleeing the war-torn country Ukraine and trying to reach the border of Poland for their safe return to India.
Four Union Ministers, Hardeep Singh Puri, Jyotiraditya M Scindia, Kiren Rijiju and Gen (Retd) VK Singh — are overseeing the evacuation efforts in the countries adjoining Ukraine.
