Indian student Varun Raj Pucha was stabbed in the head in the US. As of Nov. 3, he is in critical condition and has been put on life support.
24-year-old Varun hailed from Telangana and went to US to pursue MS in Computer Science.
Varun was enrolled at the Valparaiso University in Indiana and worked part-time.
Witnesses told police Varun was a private person and usually kept to himself, contrary to what the assailant said.
The suspect said Varun came off a ‘little weird.’ The stabbing happened at a local gym in Indiana’s Valparaiso City.
The US State Department condemned the near-fatal attack, saying America was ‘deeply disturbed’ by the incident.
