Indian American urologist shot dead in Detroit

By |

Ramesh Kumar was the third Indian American to be killed over a 24-hour period.

Ramesh Kumar, a 32-year-old Indian American physician, was found shot dead in the passenger seat of his car on a highway near Detroit in Michigan on Thursday.

He was a research fellow at Henry Ford Hospital’s Vattikutti Urology Institute.

Kumar was the third Indian American to be in killed over a 24-hour period, beginning Wednesday night. A tech executive and his wife were killed in San Jose on Wednesday night by the ex-boyfriend of their daughter at their home on Wednesday night.

Police found Kumar’s body after his father reported that his son, who left for the hospital on Thursday morning, hadn’t reached work.

He is the son of Dr. Narendra Kumar, a former President of American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (AAPI).

An autopsy has been conducted on Kumar’s boty. Police are yet to reveal the motive behind the murder.

Local Indian American news sites quoted Narendra Kumar as saying that the killing was not racially motivated.

A relative of the Kumars from Alappuzha, in Kerala, told the local Malayalam media that the family was informed of Kumar’s death on Friday morning.

According to reports, a colleague at the urology department notified Narendra Kumar that his son had not showed up for work. The father tried to reach the son on phone and sent several text messages. After getting no response from his son, Narendra Kumar reportedly drove to his apartment, which was found empty.

This prompted Narendra Kumar to lodge a complaint with the police. The police apparently asked him to wait as he was missing only for a few hours.

Hours later, after he didn’t get any response from his son, Narendra Kumar once again approached the police, who conducted a search operation that found Kumar shot dead in the passenger seat of his car that was parked on the highway in Michigan. Kumar’s body was identified and the police informed the parents.

Kumar’s family has confirmed that his funeral will be held on Monday. A prayer service will be held at the family’s residence in Freeland, MI, on Sunday.

According to his father’s personal website, Ramesh Kumar graduated from Cranbrook-Kingswood High School in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, and attened Boston University. He earned his medical degree from Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences in Kochi, India.

Kumar had a sibling, Sarada.

    what is terror? anyone whose life is in danger is terrified by a terrorisist.
    one man’s freedom fighter is another man’s terrorist.

    america was the first terror, genocide against native Indians.

    Most of these shootings of brown skinned men under dubious circumstances have been shown to have been done by white nationalists wishing to “exterminate the muds”, killing one at a time. There are several other white nationalists who believe that “a white man killing a sh!tsk!n in Trump’s America means there’s no jail”.
    These are Trump voters’ words, not mine.

    I want to spill some white blood. Whites spill the blood of black people, brown people, Asian people, etc. ALL THE TIME every day. White people never get killed by non-whites as much as they should. They never pay for their crimes.

    I haven’t seen a white american in india, who is so vulnerable for a long long time. I guess you meant one of those natives who converted to chirstianity. you want to turn this world to a pool of blood?

    Prove it was done by a white person? They don’t even know what the motive was. Even if it was done by a white person, it’s not terror unless it was done with a particular sort of agenda or motive. It’s bad, but it’s not terror.

    Strange story, but which sources had the quote from father saying it was a hate crime? This article is the most detailed that I could find. http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/nri/us-canada-news/indian-american-doctor-shot-dead-in-michigan/articleshow/58568960.cms In it the quote is that he was sure it was not a hate crime. On top of that, it sure looks like a professional hit rather than random racially motivated murder in which a man ends up dead in his own passenger seat.
