Claiming that the friends of Ghosh are unable to claim his body, Devoleena Bhattacharjee requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar, and the Indian Embassy in the United States to get the details about the reasons behind his murder. She posted on X: “My friend #Amarnathghosh was shot & killed in St. Louis Academy neighborhood, US on Tuesday evening.

The only child in the family, the mother died 3 years back. Father passed away during his childhood. Well, the reason, the accused details everything are not revealed yet, or perhaps no one left in his family to fight for it except his few friends. He was from Kolkata. Excellent dancer, was pursuing a Ph.D., was taking an evening walk and suddenly he was shot multiple times by an unknown. Some friends in the US are trying to claim the body but still no update about it. @IndianEmbassyUS kindly see to it if you can. At least we should know the reason for his murder. @DrSJaishankar @narendramodi.”

Recent spike in crimes against Indians

Recently, the crimes against Indians in the United States have spiked. Multiple cases of attack and deaths have been reported in the last couple of months. The attacks are totally unprovoked in most cases. The Indian student community is having to deal with hate crimes and unable to get proper redressal to their grievances.
