Australian Teen Admits Killing Indian Student Nitin Garg




Australian Teen Admits Killing Indian Student Nitin GargAn Australian teenager pleaded guilty on Wednesday to the stabbing murder of Nitin Garg, the worst in a series of violent crimes against students from India that hurt diplomatic ties. Garg, 21, was attacked as he walked through parkland to work at a Melbourne burger restaurant on January 2 last year. He managed to stagger to his workplace before collapsing with fatal stab wounds.

The highest-profile in a string of muggings and beatings of Indian students in Australia, Garg’s murder made international headlines and tested diplomatic ties with New Delhi, who condemned it as a “heinous crime on humanity”. A 16-year-old boy pleaded guilty to killing Garg and to one count of attempted armed robbery in the Victorian Supreme Court and was remanded in custody for a sentencing hearing in July.
