Indian Shot Dead, Another Injured In Mexico Robbery

NEW YORK, NY (IANS) – An Indian national was shot dead and another injured after being ambushed and robbed by a group of bikers in Mexico City.

Confirming the incident, which took place on August 19 in the capital city’s Algarin neighborhood, the Indian Embassy in Mexico asked authorities to apprehend the culprits at the earliest.

The unknown assailants robbed $10,000 from the Indian nationals, who had exchanged the money at a place near Mexico City International Airport.

Police said there were four bikers on two motorcycles, who attacked the Indians and fled the scene. One of them lost his life due to the shots he received, and another was treated at the scene, without injuries.

According to the police, the foreigners did not speak Spanish, but they found identification among their belongings.

The Indian community in Mexico is small, numbering about 8,000 with about one-fifth of them in Mexico City, and the rest spread in Guadalajara, Monterrey, Cuernavaca, Queretaro, and Cancun.

The bulk is formed by IT professionals working for IT companies like TCS, Infosys, and Wipro.

Others comprise executives of Indian and international companies, academicians, and some businesspersons mostly in pharmaceuticals, textile, and garment businesses.
