Slain techie’s wife seeks answers from US government

Washington/Hyderabad, Feb 25: The wife of slain Indian engineer Srinivas Kuchibhotla has publicly sought answers to what she perceived was a spread in American hate crimes as mourners held a vigil at a local church for the victims of the bar shooting in which her husband died. Kuchibhotla, 32, was killed and his colleague Alok Madasani was injured in an apparent hate crime, when Adam W. Purinton, a white who earlier served in the US vy, shot them at the Austins Bar & Grill in Olathe, Kansas state, earlier this week. “I have a question in my mind: Do we belong here,” Suya Dumala asked at a news conference on Friday at the headquarters of electronics manufacturer Garmin, where Kuchibhotla worked as an aviation systems engineer. “We’ve read many times in newspapers of some kind of shooting happening… And we always wondered, how safe we are?”
