Los Angeles, Feb 02, 2024 A.Gary Singh

Yet another Indian student has been found dead in the US under mysterious circumstances sending shock waves among the Indian American community.

NRI Shreyas Reddy Benigeri, 19, a student of Business Statistics at the Lindner School of Business, Cincinnati, Ohio was found dead on Thursday, making it the fourth case in America in less than a month.

While the US police are investigating the matter, authorities do not suspect foul play at this stage.

  • Shreyas Reddy Benigeri holds an American passport and has an Overseas Citizenship of India.
  • His parents are of the Indian origin.
  • Shreyas Reddy Benigeri was reportedly a student of the Lindner College of Business at the University of Cincinnati, Ohio.
  • Shreyas's father has got a visa from Hyderabad and is going to be reaching the US on Saturday.
  • His funeral is likely to be held on Saturday.


Fourth death in US in a month

Reports quoting the Consulate General of India in New York said no foul play is suspected at this stage in the death of Shreyas Reddy Benigeri and that it was extending all possible assistance to the family.

However, the incident follows Neel Acharya, an Indian-origin student found dead near the varsity airport. Earlier, another Indian student Vivek Saini was fatally attacked in Georgia’s Lithonia city by a homeless drug addict.  Eighteen-year-old Akul B Dhawan at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign was found dead last month with signs of hypothermia, leading to worries and concern among parents with children studying abroad.
