A young woman who went to America for higher education, lost her life in a road accident caused a stir by making inappropriate racist comments by the US police. Kandula Jahnavi, a student from Andhra Pradesh who died in a road accident in Seattle, has come to light.
Scenes of the investigating officer mocking the young woman’s life as having no value have caused outrage in America. Expatriate Indians and netizens are protesting against the behavior of the police officer on duty saying that the lives of Indian students have no value. The Seattle Police Department has ordered an investigation into the police officer and co-worker who made racist remarks.
Kandula Jahnavi from Adon in Kurnool district is studying at North Eastern University in Southlake. On January 23 this year, a speeding police vehicle hit her while crossing the road. In the accident, Jahnavi died on the spot due to severe injuries. In this process, a video related to the conversation between Daniel Aderer, the Guildwise President of the Seattle Police Officers while driving a car, has recently come to light.
On the phone with Guild President Mike Solan, Audarer made a sarcastic comment that Jahnavi’s life was worth very little and her life was worth nothing. Laughing loudly that she is dead, he dismissed the death of the Indian student very easily, saying that it was all normal.
He decided that if the deceased was 26 years old, he would write a check for 11,000 dollars as compensation. Aderer’s comments that she was worth too little reflected the racist nature of the American police.
