2 min read

Mysuru: If everything had gone well, Nandini Aithal would have been joining her son in USA in January. However, everything has shattered after the news of her son’s death reached home.

Nandini’s elder son Abhishek Sudesh Bhat (25) was shot dead by an unidentified assailant at San Bernardino in California in USA on November 28.

Bhat was pursuing his masters in computer science at San Bernardino, California in USA since over one- and-a-half- years.

He had graduated in BE Computer Science from Vidya Vikas Institute of Engineering and Technology (VVIET), Mysuru in 2016.

While he was studying by the day, he used to work in a hotel during free time to meet the expenses. He was found dead outside the hotel close to midnight hours.

Bhat’s father Sudesh told media persons “I had stayed with my son for three weeks. My wife was planning to travel in January, but the news of his death came as a shock”.

Sudesh also took potshots at the prevailing system in India, where talents are still not getting their due. It prompts many such meritorious students to look towards west for green pasture.

Reiterating that the mortal remains of Abhishek will be cremated in USA, Sudesh demanded the Visa for his second son to leave for US.

Mysuru- Kodagu MP Prathap Simha who called on the grieving parents of Abhishek condemned the incident, especially the growing gun culture in the west that is claiming the lives of peace loving Mysureans.

Simha informed that he has spoken to US consulate general’s office to grant emergency Visa to Abhishek’s parents.

Earlier, Health and Family Welfare Minister B Sriramulu also visited the family and consoled them.

Sudesh is a known yoga teacher in Ramakrishna Nagar and Kuvempunagar in the city.
