In a devastating turn of events, two Indian students were discovered lifeless at their residence in the US state of Connecticut. The roommates, Gattu Dinesh from Wanaparthy, Telangana, and Nikesh from Srikakulam, Andhra Pradesh, were found unresponsive by local friends who had visited their apartment in Hartford.
Both students, in their twenties, were pursuing master’s degrees in computer science at the University of Sacred Heart. The exact cause of their deaths is yet to be officially confirmed, but a gas leak is suspected.
