The mother of Indian techie who was shot dead in the US last week in a suspected racist attack, questioned the immigration policies of President Donald Trump, which allegedly triggered racist attacks. “The US is the country of migration. People from all countries migrate to US. Who are you to say don’t come,” asked Parvatha Vardhini, mother of Srinivas Kuchibhotla, who was cremated here on Tuesday. “If you kill people because of their colour and race, what will happen to their parents? Did you give birth to them, raised and educated them,” asked the grief-stricken mother, opening up for the first time since Kansas shooting incident which killed her son.

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.

Parvatha said her son had gone to the bar with his friend to see the football match on a big screen. “His wife had gone to the office and till her return he wanted to spend some time. Was this a crime?” she asked while talking to media persons at their house in Bachupally on the outskirts of Hyderabad.

She claimed that Kuchibhotla did not say anything to the man who entered into an argument. “My son did not say anything even though the attacker kept throwing racial slurs,” she said.

She said Indians living in the US should stay united to prevent such incidents. She, however, was not sure how they will succeed in the atmosphere created in that country.

Kuchibhotla’s body was brought here Monday night and the last rites were performed Tuesday.

His wife Sunayna Damala, who was staying with him in Kansas, and some other relatives also flew in from the US.

      Most of the Telanganites and Andraites are falsely egotistical and falsely snobbish ,that they think that they can lazily enjoy of respectability and social prestige by being in "Amirca" . The fact is an eye-flusher: a majority of the human-resources, these produce are of unemployable -qualities . And they got to America, where they are unwelcomed. They are completely absent of a self-respect ,somehow they want to live ina false pride.
