Another Indian student, identified as Shreyas Reddy Benigeri, was found dead on Thursday in the U.S. state of Ohio's city of Cincinnati. The Consulate General of India in New York has confirmed that local police are currently investigating the circumstances around the death, and foul play is not suspected at this stage.

The Consulate expressed sorrow over the passing of Shreyas Reddy Benigeri, who was studying at the Lindner College of Business in Cincinnati.

In an official statement posted on Thursday, the Consulate assured it is in constant contact with the family and providing all necessary assistance.

This incident follows a series of tragic events involving Indian students in the United States recently. Just days before Benigeri's death, 25-year-old Vivek Saini, an Indian MBA graduate, was brutally attacked by 25-year-old Julian Faulkner, a homeless drug addict. The horrifying incident, captured on video, showed Faulkner striking Saini around 50 times on the head with a hammer.

In another recent incident, Neel Acharya, an Indian student, was reported missing and later confirmed dead by the Tippecanoe County Coroner's Office. Authorities responded to a distressing scene at 500 Allison Road in West Lafayette, where the lifeless body of the college-aged male was discovered one Sunday morning.

The recent spate of tragic incidents involving Indian students has led to calls for better support and protection for them as they pursue studies abroad. The Indian government has expressed concern and vowed to work closely with U.S. authorities to ensure the safety of Indian students.
