Dalvir Singh, 27, died at the Maribyrnong Immigration detention centre here on 13 February allegedly by hanging himself. The Indian community has sought details from the federal government as to what and how the tragic incident happened.
Sydney-based cardiologist and prominent community member Yadu Singh said, "Full facts are not out at this stage, but we ask Department of Immigration and Border Protection and Minister Morrison's office to put Indian community in the loop with full information and take them in confidence."
Tim Singh, former mayor of City of Darebin, said, "We need to take a humanitarian approach. Australia needs to be sympathetic towards the plight of students to rebuild confidence in our education industry and build Australia's reputation. Such a cold response from the government will not help build bridges."
"The family and the Indian community needs answers about what happened. Why was he detained in this manner and why was he not given support? We need straight answers not secrecy and half-truths. If the government wants to expand Indian student numbers then it needs to show more humanity. Clearly it has failed in its duty of care with this student," he added.
