Another Techie from AP Dies in the US
Can’t seem to figure out why so many techies from Andhra are either committing suicide or being shot in the US. Whatever the cause, this is a very sad incident. Maybe the economy is to blame for these incidents. People who are unable to handle loss of job get depressed and kill themselves or in the fit of rage go out to kill others.
Muthyala Purushottam, a 27-year-old software engineer from Andhra Pradesh, was found dead in his flat in Indianapolis in the US, family sources said Thursday. This is the second incident of the death of a techie from the Indian state in the US this month.
Purushottam’s family in Anantapur town received a phone call from the US Wednesday informing them that he was found dead in the bathroom of his flat Tuesday night.
The news of Purushottam’s death came close on the heels of a 26-year-old techie from Andhra Pradesh being shot dead in Arkansas. Akshay Vishal, who was an employee of the scam-hit Satyam Computer Services, was killed by unidentified persons as he was returning home on January 13.
His murder was the seventh case of students and professionals from Andhra Pradesh being killed in the US in the last 13 months.
