Syed Abdul Raheem Fahad, who was studying in Auckland, New Zealand, also worked as a part-time taxi driver there, his family members said.
A relative living in Australia informed them yesterday morning that a drunk driver jumped a traffic signal at a high speed and rammed into Fahad's car, killing the latter on the spot, the deceased's cousin, Faizal, told PTI.
The family, which lives in the Chanchalguda area in Hyderabad, has appealed to Swaraj to help bring Fahad's body to Hyderabad at the earliest and also for financial assistance, he said.
"We have contacted the officials at the Indian embassy (in New Zealand) also," Mr Faizal added.
Telangana BJP president K Laxman also requested Ms Swaraj for help in this regard.
