IIT-Kharagpur Director Partha Pratim Chakrabarti on Thursday expressed grief at the “senseless loss of life” following the killer of University of California-Los Angeles professor being identified as Indian doctoral student and institute alumnus Mainak Sarkar.

“We are extremely sad at this senseless loss of life and our hearts go out to the families who lost their loved ones,” Chakrabarti said when asked about the development.

Sarkar, 38, who was born in India before going to the US for higher study, shot dead engineering professor William Klug, 39, in his office on the university campus before turning the gun on himself, the Daily Mail quoted the Los Angeles Police Department as saying.

He appeared to have had a long-running feud with Klug.

As per reports, Sarkar graduated from the IIT-Kgp with a degree in aerospace engineering.
