Attempt To Theft Or Targeted Murder?

During the treatment of Sai Charan Nakka, the doctors found out that he had a gunshot wound on his head; as a result, he died less than two hours afterwards, a statement by MDTA was quoted as saying.

So far, the Baltimore police have officially kickstarted a homicide investigation following the death of Nakka.

As per the family, the 25-year-old software engineer has been working with a company in Baltimore city of Maryland, over the past two years and was on his way home after dropping off a friend at the airport.

The events that led to the death of Nakka are still unclear; however, some reports revealed that he was shot dead by a black man while he was travelling in his car.

Indians Not Safe Abroad?

This is not the first time Indians, including working professionals and students, have lost their lives in hate crimes or robbery attempts.

A 21-year-old Indian student died after he was shot multiple times following a shooting at the entrance of a subway station in Toronto, Canada, while he was on his way to work. Identified as Kartik Vasudev, the victim was shot in St James Town at the Glen Road entrance towards the Sherbourne TTC station on April 8.

Gun violence is a significant problem in the US, with the country reporting mass shooting cases on a regular basis. Most recently, Chicago experienced a gun violence incident on June 11 and 12, with five people dead and 16 others injured in different shooting incidents, shocking the nation and the policymakers.

The unfortunate event had occurred just a week after the Philadelphia shootings on a busy street where three people were killed and 11 injured.
