Indian techie's murder: White House breaks silence after a week, calls it 'disturbing'

After keeping mum for almost a whole week, Donald Trump's White House today briefly touched on the murder of an Indian techie in Kansas, saying that "early reports out of Kansas are...disturbing."

White House press secretary Sean Spicer made a passing reference to what many are calling a hate crime, while he was condemning attacks on Jewish community centres across the US.

"And while we're at it, I don't want to get ahead of the law enforcement, but I was asked the other day about the story in Kansas -- the shooting in Kansas. And while the story is evolving, early reports out of Kansas are equally disturbing," Spicer said.

Earlier, Democrat Hillary Clinton tweeted yesterday to say Trump should speak out.

Indian techie Srinivas Kuchibhotla was killed and Alok Madasani was injured when Adam Purinton, a former US Navy veteran, shot them a bar in Olathe, Kansas, last Wednesday night.

Purinton reportedly got into an argument with the victims and hurled racial slurs. He yelled "get out of my country" and "terrorist" before shooting them.

The mortal remains of the slain 32-year-old were flown to Hyderabad Monday night. He will be cremated today.
