Another Indian national was found dead under suspicious circumstances in the United States of America. The Telugu Association of North America (TANA) which came to know about the incident two days ago informed the parents in India the death of 28-year-old Nikhil. The post-mortem on the body was completed and the police said that the person would have died of drug reaction. The dead body is expected to arrive at Visakhapatnam on Friday.
According to the sources, the body was completely spoiled and the officials suspect the death apparently took place ten days back. The people living in the apartments where Nikhil stayed (on the outskirts of Dallas in Trophy Club city) complained the police about the filthy smell that they were getting from the flat. The police who broke open the door on April 21 have found the dead body in reportedly decomposed state.
It may be noted that Nikhil was working with an investment company after he completed M.S in 2008 from A & M University in Texas. Before moving to US, he pursued M.S (Industrial Engineering) at NIT Allahabad and worked with a private company in Noida.
Notably, this is the second death of Indian students in US within a week. The Centre-instead of taking up matters like frisking Bollywood stars at airport seriously-should focus on frequent deaths of Indian nationals in US. (Phani)
