The Indian consulate in New York recently expressed condolences to the family of Arshia Joshi, a 21-year-old Indian-origin woman who died in a car accident in Pennsylvania on March 21. The consulate also stated they are in touch with the family and local community leaders to offer assistance, including helping to repatriate her remains back to India if that's the family's wish. 

This news has come in the wake of multiple terrible occurrences involving Indian nationals who died while attending American universities, many of them as students. The Indian Consulate announced this week that it is assisting Cleveland's law enforcement in their efforts to find Mohammad Abdul Arfath, a 25-year-old Indian student who has been missing since the start of the month. Arfath had not spoken to his family since March 7 while he was a master's student at Cleveland University in Ohio studying information technology. 

Another such incident was reported unfortunate demise of Abhijeeth Paruchuru, an Indian student in Boston.

Meanwhile, in the wake of several "unfortunate" instances involving Indians, Indra Nooyi, the former CEO of PepsiCo, gave some advice to Indian students, earlier this week. The Indian Consulate General in New York uploaded the 10-minute video message on Thursday.
