25-year-old Indian techie shot in Baltimore, dies in the hospital

Maryland Police were called on check on a single-vehicle crash when they found Sai injured in an SUV, he was immediately rushed to hospital where he was later pronounced dead. 

A 25-year-old Indian-origin man has died after he was found injured with an apparent gunshot wound to his head inside a SUV, according to authorities in the US state of Maryland.

The man has been identified as Sai Charan Nakka from Telangana. He had been working in Baltimore for over 2 years.

Maryland Police were called on check on a single-vehicle crash when they found Sai injured in an SUV, he was immediately rushed to hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

The family of Sai Charan in Nalgonda town received the news with shock, with his father N Narasimha and mother Padma remaining inconsolable after hearing about their son's death.

Narasimha said he got the information about his son's death on Monday night from his brother, who stays in Hyderabad.

"We did not want to send our son to the US. We wanted him to be here. I had no interest in sending him there and told him not to go. But he insisted and then we allowed him to realise his wish as he was very particular to go to the US. We never imagined that he would be coming back as a dead body", Narasimha, who could not hold back his tears, said. He also said the US government should not issue gun licenses "indiscriminately" to its citizens which may lead to such incidents.

Narasimha said Sai Charan flew to the US in August 2020. After completing his MS course he was working there in Maryland for the past six months.

His son had spoken to them last Friday and asked them to send bank account details.

"He had recently bought a new car. We have been told that at the time of the incident he was alone in the vehicle. It seems he had gone for walking," Narasimha said.

"We put a message to him on Saturday (asking) How are you Sai. But there was no response. We again sent him message to talk to us. We thought may be due to his work he did not reply," a teary-eyed Padma said.
