Attack on Indian students in Italy's Milan: Sushma Swaraj monitoring the situation

New Delhi, Oct 31: The Indian Consulate in Milan has informed that Indian students have been assaulted in a sequence of incidents reported from northern Italy.

The Consulate General of India (CGI) in Milan on Monday issued an advisory to Indian students and asked them not to panic.

"The Consulate has received reports of unfortunate incidents of attacks on Indian students in Milan. 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," read the advisory posted on the Twitter handle of the CGI.

It is not yet clear if the attacks are racially motivated.

The CGI has advised Indian students to be in touch with each other, especially when they go out and advised students to spread information among other students from India about the areas where they have experienced such incidents so that such areas can be avoided.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj has said she had received a detailed report about the incidents.
