DETROIT (TIP): Ramesh Kumar became the third Indian American to be 
killed in a little over a 24-hour period, beginning Wednesday, May 
10 night. A tech executive and his wife were killed in San Jose on 
Wednesday night by the ex-boyfriend of their daughter at their home on 
Wednesday night.

Police found Kumar’s body after 
his father reported that his son, who left for the hospital on Thursday 
morning, hadn’t reached work.

He is the son of Dr. Narendra Kumar, a former President of American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (AAPI).
 An autopsy has been conducted on Kumar’s body. Police are yet to reveal
 the motive behind the murder. Local Indian American news sites quoted 
Narendra Kumar as saying that the killing was racially motivated.

A relative of the Kumars from Alappuzha,
 in Kerala, told the local Malayalam media that the family was informed 
of Kumar’s death on Friday morning.

According to reports, a colleague at the
 urology department notified Narendra Kumar that his son had not showed 
up for work. The father tried to reach the son on phone and sent 
several text messages. After getting no response from his son, 
Narendra Kumar reportedly drove to his apartment, which was found empty.

This prompted Narendra Kumar to lodge a 
complaint with the police. The police apparently asked him to wait as he
 was missing only for a few hours.

Hours later, after he didn’t get 
any response from his son, Narendra Kumar once again approached 
the police, who conducted a search operation that found Kumar shot 
dead in the passenger seat of his car that was parked on the highway 
in Michigan. Kumar’s body was identified and the police informed the 
parents. Kumar’s family has confirmed that his funeral will be held on 
Monday. A prayer service will be held at the family’s residence in 
Freeland, MI, on Sunday.

According to his father’s 
personal website, Ramesh Kumar graduated from Cranbrook-Kingswood 
High School in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, and attended Boston 
University. He earned his medical degree from Amrita Institute of 
Medical Sciences in Kochi, India.
