A 21-year-old suspected was arrested on charges of stabbing an Indian-origin doctor to death in the US state of Kansas on Thursday. The 21-year-old is charged with first-degree murder.
The Indian-origin doctor, Achutha Reddy, was a psychiatrist by profession. He belonged to Nalgonda in Telangana.
The doctor’s body was found with multiple knife wounds near the Holistic Psychiatric Services building on Carriage Parkway in Wichita on Wednesday.
The 21-year-old suspect is said to be Reddy’s patient.
Reddy was pronounced dead at the scene by the police, Lt Todd Ojile, section commander of the homicide division at the Wichita Police Department, told reporters at a news conference on Thursday.
“During the investigation, we learned that the 21-year- old suspect was a client of Dr Reddy and had been at the office. The suspect was in the business for a short time. He left and then later came back with Dr Reddy and they went into an office there,” Ojile told Hindustan Times.
