the next morning, Navjot's body was discovered.
An Indian student who had been studying in Canada has died under suspicious circumstances.
Navjot Singh was originally from the town of Shahabad, Uttar Pradesh, but had gone to Canada to obtain a Bachelor of Commerce.
His body was discovered in his room on April 20, 2020.
The Indian Embassy informed the deceased’s family who were shocked to hear what had happened.
The family are especially upset because they do not know the reason for Navjot’s death. There is also an issue with bringing his body back to India due to flights being cancelled.
Kashmir Singh explained that his 18-year-old son had gone to Canada on September 3, 2019, for his studies. He went on to say that he did not suspect anything which may have resulted in his death.
Kashmir revealed that he spoke to his son on April 19, 2020, and everything seemed fine.
However, the next morning, Navjot’s body was discovered.
Kashmir received a call from the Indian Embassy in Canada, saying that the Indian student had died.
The family wanted to fly to Canada but due to Coronavirus, they were advised to stay at home.
While it is currently unknown how Navjot died, all will be revealed in the post-mortem report.
The family have demanded for the body to be flown back to India.
In a separate incident, a student started developing mental health issues due to the COVID-19 crisis.
The Non-Residential Indian had been living in the Nakodar area of Jalandhar, however, he and his family live in Dubai.
Harsimran Singh lived there as he was a student at CT Group of Institutions.
However, due to COVID-19, flights have been suspended, meaning that he was unable to return to his family.
As a result, the issue has taken a toll on him mentally.
It became more significant when the curfew prevented Harsimran from being able to see his aunt, who lives in the area.
This prompted the young man to take to Twitter and seek help from the Punjab government and the district administration.
He wrote: “Sir I’m a student living alone in a village of Nakodar Tehsil (10km away).
“Due to the ongoing situation, I have started to get mental health issues and have no immediate family here in India.”
After revealing his loneliness and his subsequent mental health issues, the Chief Minister of Punjab, Amarinder Singh, responded.
He told him that they will help him. The matter was immediately transferred to the Jalandhar District Administration.
Chief Minister Singh wrote: “Please don’t worry, we are along with you in the need of this hour.
“District Public Relations Office Jalandhar, kindly look into this matter on urgent basis.”
Shortly after the response, the deputy commissioner and SSP arrived at the scene. They were accompanied by a team of doctors.
After conducting a medical checkup, the administration gave Harsimran permission to stay with his aunt in Nakodar.
