NEW DELHI: The family members of an Indian student critically injured in an attack in Britain have got visas to go and visit him.

British visas have been given to the family of Praveen Reddy, diplomatic sources said Sunday.

The 26-year-old MBA student, who hailed from Hyderabad, was critically injured by unidentified assailants in London late Friday night. At least 11 people have been arrested in connection with the incident.

His family received information from the hospital authorities, who asked them to rush to London.

According to reports, Praveen Reddy was stabbed in the neck, chest and abdomen several times and thrown out of the apartment where he lived.

A quarrel between two groups of students hailing from Andhra Pradesh is believed to have led to the attack.

Indian External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna had spoken to acting Indian High Commissioner in Britain Rajesh Prasad, asking him to extend all possible help to the stabbed student.

He also spoke to the victim's father in Hyderabad.
