Dr Rajkumar, president of the Telangana NRI Parents Association, told CNN-News18, "It is a very serious issue. It is a racial attack. After Donald Trump government has come to power, such incidents have increased. There is jealousy. The person who killed said go back from country."

He added, "We will immediately take up this issue with state government and Ministry of external affairs."

The parent community from the two Telugu states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana had also raised concerns after Trump administration's proposed visa reforms. However, with racial attack and hate crimes against Indians, the parents are in fear now."

"The situation is bad and parents are worried about sending children to US. Many are even asking their children to come back. There is no guarantee for life," Rajkumar said.
