Indian American Killed In Philadelphia Gas Station Robbery
PHILADELPHIA, PA (IANS) – An Indian American man was killed during a robbery on January 17 at a gas station here where he was working on the night shift. Police have announced a $20,000 reward for the capture of three suspects wanted in the killing of Patro Siboram.
Patro, 67, was born in a small town in eastern India and immigrated to the US in 1988, according to an obituary posted by the funeral home taking care of the final rites.
On a GoFundMe page, set up for Patro’s family, his son Sachin wrote, “My dad, was one of the most kind-hearted and friendly people you could’ve ever met. He lit up any room with his energy and jokes. He made sure his friends were taken care of and reminded us of all, constantly, that life is too short to sit and be stressed.”
According to police, Patro was killed during the robbery by three masked persons, one of them with a handgun.
The police circulated pictures of the suspects from surveillance cameras.
According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, people working in sales have the highest rate of being killed.

Hope the police does not ignore this murder as they usually do. Hope the perpetrators are caught and punished. India West does not appear to have reported yet another brutal murder of Nandapu Devansh in Chicago.
Unfortunately, the new mantra in the U.S. is “Law and Order do not matter.”January 26, 2023
