The government of India on Thursday said Chinese authorities are investigating the circumstances of the death of an Indian student in China's Tianjin city.

India’s Ministry of External Affairs also said efforts are on to bring home his mortal remains as quickly as possible.

Aman Nagsen, a student of Business Administration in the Tianjin Foreign Studies University, was found dead on July 29. He hailed from Bihar's Gaya.

"We are aware of this unfortunate incident and our condolences to the family members," External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said at a media briefing.
