Indian man killed in Kansas bar shooting

Indian man killed in Kansas bar shooting

His friend Alok Madasani, 32, and an American were also hurt in the attack, in which Navy veteran Adam Purinton reportedly opened fire while screaming at the two Indian men to "get out of my country".

The father of one of the Indian men who were shot at a Kansas bar in what may have been a racially-motivated attack Wednesday night pleaded to parents in India to consider keeping their children from entering the US amid an environment of fear and hysteria.

The Kansas City Star quoted a witness as saying a man shouted "get out of my country" before shooting at the Indian men.

A day after Indian-origin engineer Srinivas Kuchibhotla was learnt to have been killed in shooting at a bar in Kansas City in the United States in an apparent hate crime, his wife said she had had her doubts about staying on in America. Madasani and 24-year-old Ian Grillot, were injured in the shooting.

US Education Secretary Calls Obama Transgender Memo 'Overreach'
There has been a lot of misinformation circulated about Betsy DeVos , and I appreciate the chance to set the record straight. Despite calling Trump an "interloper", DeVos will definitely be a useful ally to President Trump within his administration.

When Kuchibhotla and Alok Madasani, colleagues from the nearby headquarters of Global Positioning System major Garmin, settled down for a drink after work at a bar in Olathe, Kansas, on Wednesday, as they had done several times before, a white man came over.

According to police, Grillot was shot when he tried to intervene after Purinton threatened the two Indian men.

He also is charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder in the shootings of Madasani and Grillot.

His widow, Sunayana Dumala, said he came to the United States in 2005 to pursue a master's degree at the University of Texas at El Paso, and had worked in Iowa for six years before moving to the Kansas City area. His parents, Madhusudhan Rao and Vardhini Rao, were too stunned by news of his death to comment, the Associated Press reported. We've read many times in newspapers of some kind of shooting happening somewhere. He is being held on US$2 million bond. One of the Garmin employees, Srinivas Kuchibhotla, 32, later died in a local hospital.

Trump Orders Agencies To Create 'Regulatory Reform' Task Forces
Trump said he's been listening to American companies and workers complain for a long time about excessive regulations. He quickly started to deliver on this promise, signing his first executive order on regulation a week later.

Jaganmohan Reddy, Madasani's father, said he thought it was a hate crime.

Last October, two men were charged with hate crimes in Richmond, California, after being accused of beating an Indian Sikh man and using a knife to cut his hair, which was uncut due to religious law. He told Mic in an email that he believes the shooting was a result of President Donald Trump's controversial rhetoric and discriminatory policies, such as the travel ban.

Speaking to reporters on Friday at the Garmin headquarters, Ms Dumala said she had always been anxious by reports of shootings she read about in the newspapers.

India's foreign minister Sushma Swaraj conveyed her condolences to the victim's family and assured to provide "all help and assistance".

Cardinals, Cowboys to meet in 2017 Hall of Fame Game
The order of events for enshrinement weekend has been changed to make the game the first event instead of the last. Dallas and Arizona first met in 1960 and have played a total of 88 regular-season games.

Kuchibothla worked at Garmin, as did his co-worker, Madasani.
