US city holds vigil after shooting death of Indian engineerHundreds of people marched and prayed in the Midwestern US city where an Indian expatriate was killed and another wounded in a suspected hate crime that has prompted calls for action. Indians at home and in the United States have expressed shock at Wednesday’s shooting in the Kansas community of Olathe that saw a drunk white man scream racial slurs and allegedly open fire on two young Indian engineers, killing one. Alok Madasani, the 32-year-old Indian engineer who survived, told a prayer vigil Sunday that he was suffering profound loss after the death of his dear friend of nine years.
