Gold Coast-based Registered Migration Agent Seema Chauhan helped Shubham’s family in the Australian Visa application process. Shubham’s brother Rohit Garg has been granted Visa to come to Australia to be with his brother.

Sydney-based Indian Australian community leader Dr Yadu Singh has also been actively involved in this process. He had also urged Australia’s High Commissioner in India Barry O’Farrell and Indian High Commissioner in Australia Manpreet Vohra to help the family.

India’s Ministry of External Affairs in a statement said they are aware of the attack on an Indian national in Australia: “The Indian national is in hospital, our High commission & consulate is in close touch with local authorities & family here. Our officials have met the national. Our expectations is that action must be taken on perpetrators.”

Shubham still remains in the hospital and has undergone multiple surgeries. His condition remains serious but stable.

Once in Australia, Shubham’s family will need additional support such as housing, travel, and familiarising themselves with local conditions.
