Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao today requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi to take up issue of 'hate crime' incidents against Indians in the USA with the government of that country.
In a letter to Modi, he referred to the recent killings of two Telugu-speaking Indians Srinivas Kuchibhotla and Vamsi Chander Reddy in the US.
"It has also been noticed that hate crime against Indians has increased. As we all know, the Indian diaspora in the US are contributing immensely to the development of US and India as well. I request you to take up the matter with the US authorities at appropriate level," Rao said in the letter.
On February 22, Indian nationals Srinivas Kuchibhotla and Alok Madasani were shot at a bar in Olathe, Kansas, by a man shouting "get out of my country". Kuchibhotla, 32, later died at a hospital.
