ukraine: Ailing Punjab student dies in Ukraine hospital

BATHINDA: Even as thousands of Indian students are scrambling to leave Ukraine, a fourth-year MBBS student from Barnala town of Punjab died in a hospital in the war-torn country on Wednesday due to medical complications. Chandan Jindal, 22, studying at Vinnytsia National Medical University in West-Central Ukraine, had been in hospital for over a month after blood clots were diagnosed in his brain, a relative said.
Chandan’s father Shishan Kumar and brother Krishan Gopal had reached Ukraine on February 7 after they came to know of his condition. While Krishan Gopal managed to return to India on Tuesday, Chandan’s father is still in Ukraine. Shishan Kumar had recently retired as chief pharmacist from Barnala civil hospital.
“Chandan was suffering from a brain ailment and was admitted to hospital some time ago. We got the news of his demise on Wednesday. We are in touch with junior external affairs minister Meenakshi Lekhi to get back his body,” said Chandan’s uncle Dheeraj Kumar Daddahoor.
