Rao may’ve been killed by jealous mates, says dad

NEW YORK: K Seshadri Rao, from Odisha, was chasing the US dream commonly associated with his Andhra roots. The 24-year-old had got a B Tech degree from the National Institute of Technology (NIT) in Karnataka and was pursuing a degree at Boston University’s Graduate School of Management. Had all gone well, he would have begun a three-month paid internship from next month.

“I got a verification call from the external affairs ministry about the body around 2am on Thursday night,” said his father Sudhakar Rao, a bank employee in Jeypore in Koraput district. Seshadri is survived by his parents and a brother. He had studied in Jeypore and Cuttack before moving to NIT for his engineering degree. “He was a brilliant student. Somebody may have killed him out of jealously as he was good at studies,” said his grieving father.

“I am deeply shocked by the brutal and savage killing of the young man studying in Boston. This is absolutely barbaric and horrible,” Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik said. The Indian ambassador said an officer of the Indian consulate in New York had been sent to Boston. The Indian consulate in New York had taken charge of the body and it will be sent to India shortly.

Boston Police commissioner Edward Davis said police were stepping up patrols across the city. He did not comment on whether Rao was targeted by some gang or if the attack was random or due to race hatred.
