Stabbed student Praveen Reddy returns to India as accused trio appear in court
Student Praveen Reddy, who almost died after a stabbing in Plaistow, is due to return home to India for good on Saturday.
The 26-year-old came to the UK to gain a qualification that would enable him to secure a senior role in the family construction business in Hydrabad.
He was staying at a flat in Kent Street when he was involved in an incident on February 10.
Praveen spent more than a week in intensive care at The Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel and was discharged last Wednesday. He is currently staying with relatives in Hounslow, west London.
His father, Sudhakar Reddy Jangam, remained at his bedside throughout and made it clear his son would abandon his studies and fly home to India once fully recovered.
