Community mourning after international student killed on way to workplace

April 13, 2022
Canada’s international student community has been shaken after an international student from Seneca College was killed last week. Kartik Vasudev, who had come from India to study Seneca’s marketing management program, had been on his way to work when he was shot at Sherbourne subway station. Students from Seneca gathered for a vigil in Nathan Phillips Square to mourn his passing and raise awareness about the importance of newcomer safety. “He was hardworking, bright, full of ambition and energy and enthusiasm for making a new life in Canada and then (he was) cut down completely randomly on a Thursday afternoon going to his workplace,” said Seneca President David Agnew. “This makes no sense. So I think every international student feels that.” CBC reports that a man has been arrested and charged with two counts of first-degree murder. CBC (1) | CBC (2) | Global News | Tribune India (ON)
