When Kuchibhotla and Alok Madasani, colleagues from the nearby headquarters of Global Positioning System major Garmin, settled down for a drink after work at a bar in Olathe, Kansas, on Wednesday, as they had done several times before, a white man came over.

A worker at the bar in Olathe told the Kansas City Star that when the suspected gunman, Adam Purinton, began harassing the two Indian men, Ian Grillot "stood up for them". Also previous year, a Sikh man in Richmond, Calif., was allegedly attacked by two refinery workers; they are accused of cutting off his religiously mandated unshorn hair.

A page for Mr Kuchibhotla, whose funeral will be in India, had more than $513,000 (£411,000) in donations. Two other men, 32-year-old Alok Madasani and 24-year-old Ian Grillot, were injured.

Law enforcement officials said they were still in the early stages of investigating the crime, and could provide few details to confirm witness reports of the incident.

Yet, the Trump administration's tough stance on immigration and its protectionist agenda are emerging as possible pressure points in the relationship.

In a statement, US Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi, who represents Illinois' 8th Congressional District, said the shooting incident appeared to be "an act of hatred". "People do stupid things all the time".

"We didn't react", Madasani said, adding, "People do stupid things all the time".

Speaking to reporters on Friday at the Garmin headquarters, Ms Dumala said she had always been anxious by reports of shootings she read about in the newspapers.

"I wonder what the U.S. government will do to stop hate crimes against minorities", Dumala added.

China offers condolences over death of Russia's United Nations envoy
CIS member states' ambassadors to the USA and representatives of the United Nations secretariat were the first to sign the book. He also served as ambassador in Canada and Belgium, and was a spokesman for the Foreign Ministry in the early 1990s.

The Navy veteran would come back and shoot the two.

Purinton has been charged with premeditated first-degree murder and two counts of attempted premeditated first-degree murder.

The federal authorities are still investigating the case to establish whether it was a hate crime.

Madasani and Grillot survived the attack.

A bullet went through his right hand and into his chest, fracturing a vertebra in Grillot's neck although it did miss a major artery.

Alok Madasani, another Indian injured in attack, has been released from hospital.

But the White House dismissed any suggestion US President Donald Trump's rhetoric could have led to the killing, as has been suggested by some.

Mr Trump's spokesman, Sean Spicer, said: "I mean, obviously, any loss of life is tragic, but I'm not going to get into, like, that kind of - to suggest that there's any correlation - I think is a bit absurd".

Owner Brandon Blum wrote on the website for Austins Bar & Grill in Olathe, Kansas, that the staff's "thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of the victims" of the Wednesday night shooting that some witnesses described as racially motivated.
