New Delhi: A 30-year-old student from Hyderabad was shot at a parking lot in Chicago.

The incident took place at Albany Park area of Chicago. Mohammed Akbar is pursuing masters in computer science from DeVry University in Illinois, Times of India reported.

Akbar's family members said he was shot in the cheek and his situation is critical. Akbar's family lives in Uppal area of Hyderabad.

The family has approached External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj for help. On Sunday, they had also sought assistance from Telangana home minister Nayani Narasimha Reddy and asked him to raise the issue with US authorities.

In February this year, an engineer from Hyderabad, Srinivas Kuchibhotla, was shot dead while two of his friends (one Indian) were seriously injured by a US Navy veteran who mistook them as 'Middle Eastern' in a crowded Austin's Bar and Grill in Olathe of Kansas in the United States on Wednesday night.
