An Amritsar man living in the US capital of Washington was shot dead on Wednesday night while on duty at a service centre there. Victim Rajinder Sharma (45) was from the Khandwala area here.

His family here and the residents of the city have requested the Indian government to ask the US counterparts for action against the killers. The victim’s brother, Ashwini Sharma of Khandwala, said Rajinder had migrated to the US three years ago.

“Around 12.30 am on Thursday, he was on duty at the service centre when a black man accosted him and demanded cash. He gave him the money but the man still shot him and went away. A customer who dropped in later found the body,” said Ashwini Sharma.

The family has asked the US government for justice.
