China says, Aman Nagsen’s death is case of ‘homicide’, suspect is another foreign student at university, motive behind the crime not yet clear

Chinese Foreign Ministry today said that the death of Indian student Aman Nagsen is a case of ‘homicide’ and the suspect is another foreign student of the university. The ministry responded to Prasar Bharati Beijing saying that initial investigation of Tianjin Municipal Public Security Bureau found the death of Aman Nagsen a case of ‘homicide’ but did not reveal the nationality of the suspected foreign student. Chinese Foreign Ministry in a written statement said that ‘compulsory measures’ have been taken on the suspect and the case is still under further investigation. The statement said that relevant Chinese competent authorities have notified the Indian Embassy in Beijing on July 30th and 31st respectively and maintained communication with the embassy. The Chinese side will handle the case in accordance with law and will offer assistance in follow-up matters.
Prasar Bharati Beijing Correspondent reports that Autopsy was conducted today, and death certificate is expected in one week. Thereafter transfer of the dead body to India will be arranged. So far little details are available about the matter and the motive behind this crime is still not clear. Tianjin Municipal Public Security Bureau received a call at around 8 pm on 29th July saying that an Indian student was lying on the floor of the dormitory with ‘no sign of life’. Nagsen was enrolled for the International Business Studies course at Tianjin Foreign Studies University (TFSU) and was from Gaya in Bihar. The news has drawn huge emotional response on social media from Aman’s childhood friends, classmates and coursemates.
Indian Embassy officials are in touch with his family. The embassy had responded to a tweet by Bihar’s BJP chief, Sanjay Jaiswal, about the death of the student on July 30, saying it was in communication with Chinese authorities and the deceased’s family and was “providing all possible assistance”. He was one of the few Indian students who remained in China through the coronavirus pandemic while most of the 23,000 Indian students who left for home in early 2020 were stuck in India and unable to return due to Beijing’s reluctance to lift visa restrictions. Currently, no flights are operational between India and China.
