MILAN: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj today condemned the attack on Indian students in Milan and requested the students not to panic in this situation.
The Consulate General of India (CGI) has reached out to the students and assured them that the officials are taking up the matter with higher authorities there. Ms Swaraj also said that she has received a report about the incidents and she was “personally monitoring the situation”.
“All Indian students are urged not to panic. The Consulate is taking up this matter with the highest level of law and order authorities in Milan,” an advisory posted on Twitter said.
The advisory, however, did not comment on whether the attacks appeared to be racially motivated.
Students have been asked to be vigilant and stay in touch with the Consulate. They are being encouraged to share the information with other students about the areas where they experienced “such incidents” so that similar attacks can be avoided.
