Ambassador of India S.D Moorthy expressed his condolence over the death of Monytoch Monywiir Ajing who was killed last week in India and said at least six suspects have been arrested, however investigations were still going on.

In an exclusive interview with Juba Monitor at the Indian Embassy, he said the authorities in India were still doing investigation and when they are done they will let him know and he will be able to share with the minister.

“When this incident happened, I talked with different officials around here and also talked with the ambassador and now we are still waiting for the government in India to finish the investigation and when it’s done we will also let the media know,” S.D Moorthy said.

Monytoch Monywiir, a 29 year old boy went to India in 2013 to pursue course in Pharmaceutics and was stabbed to death by unknown assailants in Bangalore city on Saturday 30th September.

In a quote from Eye radio, the father of the student said that Monywiir left the house on Thursday evening and met unknown person after crossing the main road and was found with injuries and the police took him to the hospital.

According to the reports, Monytoch is the second South Sudanese student to die in India in approximately 15 months.

However, earlier on the Deputy Minister of foreign affairs and international cooperation demanded for an answer after a South Sudanese student was killed recently in India.
