US Embassy condemns attack on Sikh man

Washington, Mar 5 (IBNS): The US Embassy in India on Sunday condemned the attack on a Sikh man in Kent city.

Mary Kay Loss Carlson, Chargé d'Affaires at US Embassy, tweeted: "Saddened by shooting in WA. Wishes for quick and full recovery. As @POTUS said we condemn 'hate and evil in all its forms'."

In another instance of hate crime, a 39-year-old Sikh man has been injured in a shooting incident in the US city of Kent, media reports said on Sunday.

According to reports, the unknown shooter shouted "go back to your own country" while attacking.

The Sikh man has been identified as Deep Rai, who is a US national.

Rai received injury in his arm and has been released from hospital following treatment.

He has reportedly described the shooter as six-foot-tall white man with a mask covering the lower half of his face.

This comes after Indian-origin man, Harnish Patel, was shot dead on Thursday night outside his home in USA in Lancaster under South Carolina.

In the end of February, Indian origin engineer Srinivas Kuchibhotla was shot dead in a pub in Kansas city while he was hanging out with friends.

US President Donald Trump just two days before this attack condemned the Kansas attack as “hate and evil."
