KTR calls it "unacceptable" that a US cop is not indicted in the murder of an Indian student

BRS leader KT Rama Rao vehemently criticized the recent decision by a US court, expressing deep dismay over its choice not to pursue criminal charges against a Seattle police officer involved in the tragic accident that claimed the life of Jaahnavi Kandula, an Indian student. Describing the decision as "disgraceful" and "unacceptable," Rao conveyed his profound concern for justice in this matter. In a public statement conveyed via social media, Rao, also known as KTR, urged for immediate action from External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar and US Ambassador to India Eric Garcetti, calling upon them to intervene and ensure justice for the grieving family of Kandula.

Expressing his sentiments on Twitter, Rao emphasized the urgent need for the US Ambassador to India to address the issue with relevant US government authorities to secure justice for the bereaved family. Additionally, he appealed to External Affairs Minister Jaishankar to engage with his counterpart in the United States, advocating for an impartial investigation into the incident.

Rao lamented the untimely loss of a promising young individual like Kandula, highlighting the tragedy of her aspirations being abruptly cut short. Furthermore, he criticized the apparent disregard for justice exhibited in handling the case, emphasizing the importance of accountability.

The decision by the King County Prosecutor's Office not to pursue criminal charges against Officer Kevin Dave was met with widespread condemnation. The statement from the Prosecutor's Office cited a lack of substantial evidence under Washington State law as the basis for their decision.

The situation escalated when a video clip released by the Seattle Police Department depicted Officer Daniel Auderer displaying inappropriate behavior, including laughter, while discussing the tragic incident involving the death of 23-year-old Jaahnavi Kandula. The insensitivity displayed in the video added fuel to the controversy surrounding the case.

In response to the tragic loss, Northeastern University announced their decision to posthumously award Kandula's degree and present it to her family, acknowledging her academic achievements despite the untimely end to her life.
