Hyderabad: CM KCR has urged Central Government and PM Modi to take up the recent killings of Indians in America with authorities of the concerned Nation,US.
Hate crimes against Indians have increased and also shaken the confidence of the families of Indians working in United States, KCR wrote.
In his letter, KCR mnetioned about recent killings of Hyderabad Techie Kuchibhotla Srinivas and Warangal Resident Vamsi Mamidala.
Srinivas Kuchibhotla was shot dead in kansas last month which rocked Indian community and Indians back in the home country as never before.
External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said Indian Government is in constant touch with US regarding the hate crimes which are of the top most priority of the ministry.
American President Donald Trump broke his week-long silence on the killing of Srinivas Kuchibhotla, a tech professional from Hyderabad, in a shooting incident in Kansas City on Feb 22. In his address to the joint session of the Congress, Trump said,’Recent threats targeting Jewish community centres and vandalism of Jewish cemeteries, as well as last werk’s shooting in Kansas City, remind us that while we may be a nation divided on politics, we are a country that stands united in condemning hate and evil in all its forms.’
But Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has not yet reacted.
