The advisory, issued by the Indian Embassy and consulates this week, said incidents involving any kind of violence or ill behaviour create a negative image about Indians in China.

Only the students were from India, and the unlikely location: the Three Gorges University in Yichang, a city in central China’s Hubei province known only for its proximity to the famous Three Gorges dam.

The incident in the second week of April between two groups of Indian medical students led to one being stabbed with a knife and rushed to hospital after suffering a serious injury.

The university expelled all the students directly involved in the clash.

The advisory, issued by the Indian Embassy and consulates this week, said incidents “involving any kind of violence or ill behaviour create a negative image about Indians in China”.

“Although the overwhelming number of students is law-abiding, the actions of a few are detrimental to the interests of all Indians in China. The Embassy and Consulates will have zero-tolerance in all such cases.” Read More
