An Indian-origin businessman has been shot dead outside his home in South Carolina, according to media reports. Harnish Patel was shot dead near his house in Lancaseter, a little after 11:24 pm on Thursday, a media report said.
Hours later, Deep Rai, a 39-year-old Sikh man in the US was injured when an unidentified person shot him outside his home and allegedly shouted “go back to your own country”.
Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj has expressed condolence on the death of Patel. She also tweeted about the health of Deep Rai.
Patel’s death comes two days after US President Donald Trump condemned the killing of 32-year-old Indian engineer Srinivas Kuchibhotla at a Kansas bar.
