Yemeni students in India have asked the Yemeni embassy there to reveal circumstances of the suicide of their colleague who died in mysterious circumstances in the Indian city of Haidarabad this month.
Yemeni students in this and other Indian cities have held protests in the past two days, coinciding with statements by the Yemeni student unions in the country demanding the embassy and the Indian authorities to reveal the circumstances of their colleague Mohammed Othman Djerah's death. Djerah had been studying business administration in Norashida Othman University in Haidarabad. He was found dead in his apartment on 27th May.
The Yemeni student union in the city has threatened to escalate its protest if the Yemeni embassy in India does not do its job and reveal the cause of the student's death.
Djerah died in very complicated circumstances including neglect of the Yemeni authorities, the union said in a statement, condemning the failure of Yemeni embassies to address problems of Yemeni students abroad.
It called for a united effort by the Yemeni student unions in foreign countries to express solidarity with such cases at a time when Yemen is facing crises due to the five-year armed conflict.
Moreover, it urged the Yemeni embassy to cooperate with the Indian authorities and solve problems of all Yemeni students in the country.
Yemen is facing the world's worst humanitarian crisis which has been caused by the armed conflict.
