A tragic event occurred on the night of Saturday April 10, 2016 in Uzhhorod - about 4am the owner of the house located in Shchedrina street found two young men dead and the third one seriously wounded. The police officers, who arrived at the scene of the crime, found out that the victims were citizens of India - students of the Medical Faculty of Uzhhorod National University, who rented the house where the murder had happened.

Having taken immediate measures, near the Ukrainian-Slovak border, the National Police officers and frontier guards of Chop Border Detachment detained three people (two men and a woman) - all residents of the Transcarpathian region - suspected of killing the students. During the search the passports of the citizens of India and blood-stained kitchen knife were found. Later, the police discovered that the suspects had also stolen personal belongings of the dead - a tablet and a laptop.

The head of the dean’s office department for the work with foreign students of the Medical Faculty of UzhNU Prof. Vasyl Kaliy told that the victims were third- and fourth-year students of the Medical Faculty of UzhNU. They had studied in Uzhhorod for one semester. Last year they were transferred from Bukovyna State Medical University. One of the murdered was transferred to Uzhhorod National University from Luhansk Medical Institute.
