A 20-year-old Ph.D. student from India was reportedly stabbed multiple times by a man who demanded cash from him. The student, identified as Shubham Garg, is said to have sustained many injuries after being stabbed in the face, the neck as well as the abdomen on the Pacific Highway. Garg is currently reportedly “serious but stable” as he seeks medical help for his injuries.

Garg is said to be an engineer with a master’s education from IIT Chennai who had arrived to Australia to pursue a doctorate course at the reputed University of New South Wales.

The New South Wales Police gave an official statement to the press stating, “The man suffered multiple stab wounds to his face, chest, and abdomen; he sought assistance from a nearby house before being taken to Royal North Shore Hospital. The man underwent surgery and remains there in a serious but stable condition.”

A 27-year-old man named Daniel Norwood has been arrested in the incident. Norwood reportedly demanded cash from Garg and on his refusal, stabbed him multiple times in the abdomen and fled the scene. The perpetrator has reportedly been charged with attempted murder by the NSW Police at the Chatswood Police Station, where he was taken after being detained from the scene.

The suspect has been denied bail and will be detained in custody until his next court appearance.

The Ministry of External Affairs, the Indian High Commission in Canberra as well as the Indian Embassy in Sydney have all taken notice of the matter with the latter two being in close contact with the NSW investigating authorities.

It was reported that Shubham’s family was struggling to get a visa to visit him in the hospital. When the MEA caught hold of this, they reached out to the Australian High Commission regarding the same. It is now reported that, on the recommendation of the MEA, the family has now obtained visas to fly to Australia urgently.
