Oz says will cooperate with Nitin Garg's family

Written by: Staff

Melbourne, Jan 5: Australia has said that it will cooperate with Nitin Garg's family and expedite the process of returning his body back home.

21-year-old Nitin Garg, Indian student, was stabbed to death by unidentified assailants here on Saturday night, Jan 2, while on his way to work.

Speaking to reporters here, Acting Foreign Minister Simon Crean said, "We are going to try and cooperate with the family as expeditiously if we can to return the remains, the body, to his home."

Australian officials have said that no race angle was involved in the incident. Crean said, "I think we have to await the full details of the police investigation."

When asked why it took two days for government officials to contact Garg's family in India, Crean said, "I think it's unfortunate if it did take that length of time."

Since Garg's death, Australian High Commissioner in Delhi had also been in touch with the family, he added.
