A Sudanese student at a pharmacy college in Vijayawada in Andhra Pradesh was killed in a clash with a fellow countryman, the state police said on Tuesday.

Maitub, a second-year pharmacy under-graduate student, was killed when his classmate Mohammad Alauddin attacked him with a kitchen knife during a fight over an unpaid loan.

The attack occurred late Monday night at a house in Ibrahimpatnam.

According to the police, the two Sudanese studying at Nova College of Pharmacy were staying together with other students from African countries in the Ibrahimpatnam house.

Maitub had lent some money to Alauddin.

A fight broke out around midnight when Maitub demanded his money back. They attacked each other and Alauddin stabbed him.

Other students shifted an injured Maitub to a hospital in Vijayawada, where he died early on Tuesday.

The police have arrested Alauddin, who was also injured in the clash.
