Studying abroad can be isolating, making the bond between hometown acquaintances particularly cherished. Chanhakya and Jitu, both from Hyderabad, became friends while pursuing M.Sc at Dundee University.

The Indian consulate General informed the families in India, with arrangements for repatriation pending completion of post-mortem procedures. A UK student at the university has pledged assistance.
