Hundreds of people marched in Kansas City on Sunday as part of a prayer vigil after the senseless killing of Srinivas Kuchibhotla, a 32-year-old Indian engineer working in the United States of America. Among them was Srinivas' friend Alok Madasani, who was with him when a 51-year-old man opened fire at them in a bar in Kansas. Madasani escaped with injuries.

Members of the community came together in a show of solidarity and support after the horrific incident, and priests from various religious conducted the prayer.
