Patel, 43, an Indian-origin store owner in the US, was shot dead outside his home on Thursday, just days after an Indian engineer was killed in Kansas in a hate crime shooting that had sent shockwaves across the country.

A 39-year-old Sikh man, Deep Rai, in the US was also shot outside his home by a partially-masked gunman who shouted “go back to your own country”, in a suspected hate crime.
