Kansas Shooting: Telangana IT Minister meets Kuchibhotla family in Hyderabad

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin listens at right as President Donald Trump speaks during a meeting on the Federal budget Wednesday Feb. 22 2017 in the Roosevelt Room of the White House in Washington

Grillot said he was happy to see Madasani is recovering.

Prosecutors on Thursday charged a 51-year-old man with murder for a shooting at a Kansas bar Wednesday night that left one man dead and injured two others. "Such hatred is not good for people".

A GoFundMe page has also been started for Grillot, the man who tried to intervene in the shooting of the Indian men and was shot himself.

The FBI is working with the Olathe Police Department to determine whether the shooting was bias-motivated and the victims' civil rights were violated, FBI special agent in charge Eric Jackson said during Thursday's press conference.

Siva Sattanathan, a friend of the two engineers, told the New York Daily News that Kuchibhotla and Madasani were Hindus originally from Hyderabad, India.

The alleged shooter, identified as Adam W. Purinton, reportedly yelled "get out of my country" before opening fire at two Indian men in the crowded bar Wednesday night, according to the Kansas City Star. According to the Star, he told the bartender he'd "just killed two Middle Eastern men". And after a terrorist shooting in Kansas, Americans have turned to what has now become a depressingly common ritual in the face of tragedy: Raising money for the survivors through crowdfunding campaigns.

A small memorial for Srinivas Kuchibhotla outside Austins Bar and Grill in Olathe, Kansas on Friday.

He then worked for six years as a software and systems engineer at Rockwell Collins Inc in Iowa before moving to Kansas and taking a job with GPS-maker Garmin at Olathe.

Others, too, said that the climate in the United States was not conducive for immigrants.

Madasani's father, Madasani Jaganmohan Reddy, told the Hindustan Times that in recent months, he had begun to ask his son to return home, fearing that he might not be safe in the country's racially charged atmosphere, with ugly incidents and hate groups on the rise.

It also clearly stated about the involvement and the deep concern of Indian government in this case, Government of India has taken up the matter with USA authorities to express deep concern and have asked for a speedy investigation. "I couldn't say anything slightly bad about Srinivas", Larson said.

Dumala said that shooting incidents in America had even earlier made her rethink where they should continue living there. "Such things are not good for the Indian community living here".

Sushma Swaraj, Foreign Minister expressed her concerns in a tweet: I am shocked at the shooting incident in Kansas in which Srinivas Kuchibhotla has been killed. She later reported Madansani has been released from hospital.

Many immigrants in the United States have expressed concern about the language and policies of Trump, who has ordered restrictions on immigration and a stepped-up deportation process for undocumented immigrants. I'm sure Trump administration must be watching it carefully and Federal Bureau of Investigation, local police have taken prompt action.
