Stopped, Assaulted At Ukraine Border, Say Some Indian Students

New Delhi: Several Indian students fleeing Ukraine have alleged that they were harassed, beaten by the Ukrainian guards at the Poland border and were not allowed to cross over. In one of the videos shot during night time, a student wheeling his suitcase behind him is kicked by a guard in uniform. It is not clear if the student is Indian but several other students who have been camping at the Poland-Ukraine border have alleged that Indian students have been harassed. "Situation is getting worse day by day. What is happening is they are torturing us. Indian students are being tortured. They are not allowing us to cross over to Poland. Even women students are being harassed. They are being pulled by their hair and hit with rods. Some women students have suffered fractures and injuries," Mansi Chaudhary, an Indian student, told NDTV from her car in Ukraine. "Indian embassy diplomats are helping us with food and shelter. Border guards are not letting us cross. If someone tries to cross, they attack them with rods. They are punching them in the faces. Yesterday, they also opened fire," said Ms Chaudhary returning from the Ukraine-Poland border after three days. "I am in the car and am going back to my hostel. Have been waiting for three days, but we were not allowed to cross over. We have been tortured like animals. They are letting their people to cross over but not us," said Ms Chaudhary, who praised the efforts of Indian embassy. Ms Chaudhary said she would reassess her strategy once she is back at her hostel and try "alternative routes", may be take the Romania or Hungary border route. Deeksha Pandey, a senior resident in neurology at Sumy National University, told NDTV that her experience has been "devastating". "People at the border are troubled and harassed. Girls are being pulled from their hair and tortured. I don't know what's the reason for the aggression," she said.
