Kansas bar attack: Slain techie's mother blocks younger son from US
Hyderabad : After losing one son in a racist attack in the US last week, Parvatha Vardhini is not ready to take risk by sending back another son to that country.
Sai Kishore, who is employed in a firm in the US, arrived here with the body of his elder brother Srinivas Kuchibhotla, who was shot dead in Kansas by an American.
Grieving over the lost of her second of the three sons, the mother is not willing to allow the youngest to return.
The eldest of the three brothers live with the parents here.
Kuchibhotla's body was brought home on Monday night and the last rites were performed on Tuesday.
The mother blamed the policies of US President Donald Trump for the killing of her son.
The techie's wife Sunayna Dumala, brother Sai Kishore and other relatives had come with his mortal remains.
Sai Kishore was also settled in Kansas.
It was not clear if Sunayana, who also works at a firm in Kansas, will be returning to the US.
Kuchibhotla, 32, was killed and Alok Madasani was injured when Adam W. Purinton, a white man who earlier served in the US Navy, shot them at the Austins Bar & Grill in Olathe, Kansas state, on Wednesday night.
Purinton reportedly got into an argument with the victims and hurled racial slurs. He yelled "get out of my country", "terrorist" before shooting them.
Kuchibhotla of Hyderabad and his colleague Madasani from Warangal district in Telangana were working as aviation programme managers at Garmin, an MNC.
Madasani's father Janardhan Reddy already said that he would ask his son to return home as the situation had turned bad in the US after Trump became the President. He had also appealed to parents not to send their children to the US.
"My son, like many other Indians in US are well qualified and can get better jobs in India," he had said.
