|Washington, DC. The Indian-American community is shocked by the December 14th shooting of two Indian Ph.D. students on the campus of LSU. Sanjay Puri, Chairman of USINPAC, says we as individuals and as a community mourn along with the families of Chandrashekhar Reddy Komma and Kiran Kumar Allam. Mr. Puri further says, something like this is always a tragedy, two young men struck down in the prime of their lives, but with the close-knit nature of the Indian-American community and its strong sense of family this is felt all the more keenly.
USINPAC hopes that the people who committed this horrible crime will be brought to swift justice, and further hopes that anyone with information that might be helpful will come forward to the authorities.
The U.S. India Political Action Committee (USINPAC) is the political voice of 2.5 million Indian-Americans.
