New Delhi: The US Embassy on Friday strongly condemned the killing of Indian immigrant engineer Srinivas Kuchibhotla who was shot dead while two others were seriously injured in a crowded Austin's Bar and Grill in Olathe of Kansas in the United States on Wednesday night.
"We extend our heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Kuchibhotla. We share their grief, and wish a full and speedy recovery to those who were injured," US Embassy press release reads.
"We have reached out to Indian consular officials to offer full support as they assist the victims. We understand that the alleged shooter is in custody and is expected to be prosecuted for the crime. US Federal authorities are also investigating the case. We have full faith that US legal authorities will bring the case to justice," it reads.
Chargé d’Affaires MaryKay Carlson said, "We are deeply saddened by this tragic and senseless act. Our deepest sympathies are with the victims and their families. The United States is a nation of immigrants and welcomes people from across the world to visit, work, study, and live. US authorities will investigate thoroughly and prosecute the case, though we recognize that justice is small consolation to families in grief."
