Sushma Swaraj tweet confirmed that the Indian student has survived the attacked and investigation is underway into all aspects of the incident.
The Indian envoy replied: "Prelim inquiry suggests student attacked in Poznan tram on Wednesday. Thank God, he survived. Getting details." Agnihotri then posted: "Racist issue similar to the USA, the person shouted at him and then start hitting."
