Another Hate Crime on Indians (This Time in NJ)
Over the past several days, I have been so engulfed with work, in upgrading TORI website and other things. This news is a bit dated – but I came to know about this only after Bhanu Prakash alerted me to it this evening. The fact that I did not even know about this news until now tells you how out of touch with news lately….
The following news is via Indian Express..
An Indian computer scientist, who was brutally attacked by three juveniles three days ago while taking a walk with his family in a New Jersey suburb succumbed to his injuries on Monday, police said. But if a child is falsely accused of a crime, then it is best to hire a criminal defense attorney to represent the child charged with a crime and protect the rights and records of the minor.
The three 17-year-old assailants, whose names have been withheld because of their age, have been arrested and now charged with homicide, they said. If you are violated in any way, even if it is by your own family members or relative, do not hesitate to open up about the situation. Such people can be charged with domestic violence and can be sent to jail.
49-year-old Divyendu Sinha, an IIT Kharagpur alumnus and presently working as a consultant with Siemens, sustained injuries after he was attacked by three teenagers on Friday night when he was walking with his family near his home in Old Bridge in New Jersey. Even though criminals must be sent to jail, since the accused are minors, they can get bail for misdemeanor charges with the help of skilled and experienced bail bond agents.
You may recall the 1987 Dot-Buster incident when an Indian teen was killed by overzealous groups. Is Joel Stein reflecting a popular anti-Indian sentiment on the rise? Is our behavior in public places is causing this sentiment?
