  • His death marks the third such tragedy on a college campus in a month after Neel Acharya of Purdue University in Indiana, and Indian American Akul B. Dhawan, a freshman at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

Another Indian student has been found dead in Ohio, making it the third such incident on a university campus in the past month. Shreyas Reddy Beniger, a student at Linder School of Business in Cincinnati, Ohio, was found dead yesterday (Feb. 1). Authorities have ruled out any foul play or a possibility of a hate crime in the case.

Benigeri was enrolled in a graduate program in Business Statistics, according to his LinkedIn profile. Before moving to the U.S., he had completed a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering at the Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS), Pilani.

Late last month, Neel Acharya, an Indian student studying at Purdue University in Indiana, was found dead a day after he went missing. A few days before, 18-year-old Akul B. Dhawan, a student at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign was found dead last month with signs of hypothermia. His body was discovered by a university employee on the porch of a building, almost nine hours after his friend reported him missing. Originally from San Mateo, California, he was a freshman majoring in electrical engineering.
