Washington: A 57-year-old doctor from Telangana was stabbed to death at his clinic in Kansas, US, on Wednesday. This is the second killing this year of an Indian where Srinivas Kuchibhotla, also from Telangana, was shot dead in February.
Achutha Reddy, a psychiatrist, was found with multiple wounds in an alley behind his clinic in East Wichita. One of his patients, a 21-year-old Indian-American, has been arrested and charged with first degree murder.
Reports quoted the US police as saying that the attacker, identified as Umar Rashid Dutt, “repeatedly stabbed the doctor after a conversation”. He allegedly chased the doctor, who tried to get away.
Dutt was found by the police at a country club after a security guard reported a suspicious person sitting in a car in the parking lot with blood on his clothes. According to reports, his mother is from Hyderabad and his father, from Bengaluru.
