Indian Graduate Student Shot, Killed in Unprovoked Attack Near Manchester

Anuj Bidve, 23, an Indian graduate student who was majoring in micro-electronics at Lancaster University, 40 miles from Manchester, was shot and killed during the early morning hours of December 26, as he walked with friends from his hotel in Salford, an area to the west of Manchester.

COMMENT: At this point, local police are looking at all possible motives, including a hate crime. The group was stopped by an unidentified man who spoke to them briefly before shooting Bidve at close range.

Although police have appealed to the assailant to turn himself in, this is very unlikely.
The motives in this case could well be endless, given the lack of information available.

We will update our readers on this attack as information becomes available.
