NEW DELHI: India has taken up the issue of a medical student who died after being attacked by "local goons" with Russian authorities.

"We have taken this up with Russian authorities and we will take this to the logical conclusion," External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj tweeted late Wednesday night.

Yasir, a medical student from Srinagar, died on Wednesday after being comatose following the attack in Kazan city, capital of the Russian province of Tatarstan.

"I have given instructions to our embassy in Russia to send mortal remains of Yasir at the earliest," Sushma Swaraj said.

On Tuesday, the minister tweeted that Yasir, who was in coma, was being treated by an Indian doctor at a trauma centre in Kazan.

This was in response to an SOS tweet to her about the attack which said that Yasir was in a state of coma after the attack by "local goons" and had lost all his money and documents.

Sushma Swaraj also said that she had contacted India's Ambassador to Russia, Pankaj Saran, in this connection.
