Mysuru, November 30:- Sudhesh Chand’s family is yet to come to terms with the unexpected tragedy that came in the form of death of their son Abhishek Sudhesh Bhat in the United States. When reporters went to Abhishek’s house in Kuvempunagar in the city on Saturday morning, there was eerie silence. Holding back his tears, Sudhesh spoke about the tragic incident resulting in his son’s death.
“My son was not addicted to any bad habits and was a meritorious student. He was shot dead by an unidentified person,” said Sudhesh, father of Mysuru youth Abhishek who was shot dead on Thursday afternoon. Sudhesh, who is a yoga teacher by profession, was sharing his grief with the media.
“He was studying in the US and was working part-time at a motel to stand on his own in life. I had been to the US and stayed with him for three weeks and returned. His mother was supposed to go in January. Such a terrible incident should not happen to any parents,” he said.
“Our education and law system should be changed. Meritorious students should get opportunities here. But due to politics, many students are not getting better opportunities here and are moving to foreign countries. Even after knowing it is unsafe, we sent our son to the US for his future. I request other parents not to do this mistake. We won’t bring the body of our son to Mysuru. We will perform the final rites in the USA itself,” he added.
Abhishek did engineering from Vidhya Vikas Engineering College in Mysuru before going to the US two years ago. (MR/KS)
