YP Buzz - 

        As a result of Russian invasion in Ukraine, 21 years old Indian student, Naveen Shekharappa Gyandagoudar, from Chalageri village in Karnataka’s Haveri District, has been reported to be killed due to shelling at the Ukrainian city of Kharkiv on Tuesday.

Naveen Shekharappa stepped out from Arkhitektora Beketova Metro station bunker to bring groceries when he died in a shell attack, according to the reports. The coordinator for Indian students in Khakiv for a private company, Pooja told Journalist Aditya Raj Kaul that a Ukrainian woman found Naveen’s phone and called to inform that the owner of the phone had been sent to the morgue since he was killed in the blast. He was a fourth-year student of the Kharkiv National Medical University.

“With profound sorrow, we confirm that an Indian student lost his life in shelling in Kharkiv this morning. The Ministry is in touch with his family. We convey our deepest condolences to the family”, Arindam Bagchi, the spokesperson of the Ministry of External Affairs tweeted informing India about this unfortunate event. A number of Indians are still stranded in the city of Kharkiv which is threatened by a major military offensive launched by Russia. 

The MEA has also mentioned that the foreign secretary has called in the ambassadors of Russia and Ukraine to emphasize on India’s demand for “urgent safe passage” to Indian nationals who are still in the war zones including Kharkiv and similar other areas. Arindam Bagchi said, “Foreign Secretary is in talks with Ambassadors of Russia and Ukraine to reiterate our request for urgent safe passage for Indian nationals who are yet in Kharkiv and cities in other war zones. Similar action is also being undertaken by our ambassadors in Russia and Ukraine”. 

He also informed that at a high-level meeting regarding the Ukraine crisis, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the entire government is working day and night to ensure that all the Indians living there are safe and secure. ‘Special Envoys’ including Union Ministers Hardeep Singh Puri, Jyotiraditya Scindia, Kiren Rijijuand Gen (Retd) VK Singh will be travelling to the neighbouring cities of Ukraine to co-ordinate the evacuation process of Indians amidst Russian attacks. Adding to this, the union government has launched ‘Operation Ganga’ to bring back Indians from the war zone of Ukraine.     

It is said that within an hour of the announcement by the Indian embassy in Ukraine, the news of Naveen Shekharappa’s death followed. A statement from the embassy says, “ Advisory to Indians in Kyiv- All Indian nationals comprising students are instructed to vacate Kyiv urgently today. Rather by available trains or through any other means available”. 

Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai’s office said, “All efforts will be made to bring back Naveen’s body to India. The chief minister said that the matter is being discussed with foreign ministry officials”. 

Naveen Shekharappa’s death was received as a shock to India. It is still uncertain about the range of Indian students still stranded in Ukraine, probably waiting for their turn like Naveen. Amidst the conflict and war between Russia and Ukraine, the civilians become the ultimate victims, facing the consequences as their hands are coloured red with the passing of time.
