Expressing regret at the alleged racial attack in Kansas, United States, Governor Sam Brownback on Wednesday wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Earlier on 4 March, Indian Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar, on a visit to the United States, expressed confidence about President Donald Trump administration's endeavour to bring the perpetrator of the Kansas shooting to justice.
"What we heard from very high levels, cabinet levels, was that one, we should regard this as an act of an individual, two, the American justice system was at work to bring the perpetrator of this act to justice," Jaishankar said during a media conference at the Indian Embassy in Washington.
Indian engineer Srinivas Kuchibhotla was shot to death in Kansas in a racial attack. The gunman, a 51-years-old Navy veteran, was heard shouting "get out of my country" before he shot Kuchibhotla. According to local media, the gunman, Adam Purinton, was arrested after fleeing the spot of incident.
