In a tragic incident, a 27-year-old Andhra youth Sri Satya Krishna Chitturi got killed in an armed robbery in the US. Krishna wok worked as a store clerk at Crown Service Station on the old Birmingham highway in Alabama died on the spot during the course of the armed attack. The youth’s body has been sent for autopsy by the authorities.
Krishna went to the US only a month back- a promising young life cut short in the prime of youth. This fact came to light via a fund-raising post. The youth leaves behind a pregnant wife. No other details about Krishna are presently available. The police department has released photographs of the suspect who is said to be over six feet tall. The City of Calera police department, Alabama, has asked the public to get in touch with the Talladega County Sheriff’s Department, in case they have any information to share.
This sad incident brings the whole phenomenon of people from across India migrating to the West in hope of bettering their lives finding themselves in a worse situation than what prevails back home. This fresh tragedy comes close on the heels of the Gujarati family that froze to death while crossing the Canada-US border.
