PTIHouston: Sunayana Dumala, the widow of Indian engineer Srinivas Kuchibhotla who was murdered in a racially motivated hate crime at a bar in Kansas City last year, led a peace walk with her husband's hundreds of friends and co-workers. Sunayana led the memorial peace walk on Friday what would have been the 34th birthday of Kuchibhotla. Kuchibhotla was fatally shot in Olathe, Kansas, in February last year by a US navy veteran. The approximately 3km peace walk from the Garmin headquarters to the bar was meant to honour the life of Kuchibhotla. He also shot and wounded Ian Grillot, an Olathe man who tried to defend Kuchibhotla and Madasani.
