Two Indian girls, both from from Maharashtra, who were studying in a medical college in Russia have died in a fire accident and arrangements are being made to bring their mortal remains to Mumbai.

Two students were Pooja Kallur, 22, and Karishma Bhosale, 20, both from Maharashtra. They were fourth-year medicine students.

The girls were studying at Smolensk Medical Academy, which is some 400 km from Moscow.

External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj in a tweet said “We have lost two Indian girl students (both from Maharasthra) studying at Smolensk Medical Academy in Russia in a fire accident.

Some students are injured. They are out of danger. The place is 400 Kms from Moscow. Our team has already reached there.”

The fire broke out on the fourth floor of the dormitory of the Smolensk Medical Academy, said the Russian investigative committee.

Two students were killed in their sleep.

Reports said Pooja and Karishma shared a room on the fourth floor of the six-storey hostel for Indian students. Their families received calls from the families of other students on the fire and were told that the two were missing.
