Subject: Request for Intervention in Ensuring the
Safety of Indian Students in Kyrgyzstan.

Dear Dr. S. Jaishankar,
I am writing to you on behalf of Human Rights Defence International (HRDI), an
organization dedicated to the welfare and protection of the Indian diaspora and Indians
around the world. We are gravely concerned about the recent attacks on Indian students
in Kyrgyzstan that occurred on May 13th and 14th. These incidents have created a
significant sense of fear and insecurity among the Indian students studying there.
There are approximately 10,000 Indian students pursuing their studies in various
institutions in Kyrgyzstan, and these recent events have put their safety at risk. These
students are valuable ambassadors of India, contributing positively to the cultural and
educational exchanges between our two countries.
We earnestly request the Ministry of External Affairs to take immediate and
necessary steps to address this alarming situation. We urge you to engage with the Kyrgyz
authorities to ensure the safety and security of our students. It is imperative that strong
diplomatic efforts are made to protect the interests and well-being of our young citizens
We are confident that the Ministry will take swift and effective action to prevent any
further harm to Indian students in Kyrgyzstan and to ensure their continued safety.
Your prompt attention to this matter will greatly alleviate the concerns of the students
and their families. Thank you for your support and cooperation.

Yours sincerely,

Rajesh Gogna,
Secretary General,
