You can take an Indian out of India but can you…

CHICAGO: A non-resident Indian has been accused of setting an apartment fire—killing his pregnant daughter, her husband and their young child—because his son-in-law didn’t ask permission for the marriage. Subhash Chander, 57, told police he disliked his son-in-law because he belonged to a lower caste and had married his daughter without his consent. “His son-in-law was beneath him in his opinion,” prosecutors said.

PATIALA: A US-based doctor of Indian origin, Gurpreet Singh, earning Rs 7 lakh per month, was arrested along with his parents for demanding a dowry of Rs 50 lakh just before the marriage ceremony was solemnised, saying that they could not take the bride, also a doctor, with them “just like that”.

MADRAS:  An Indian woman, 28 weeks pregnant, was allegedly beaten up by her husband Christy Danius, an Infosys employee in the US , who reportedly threw her out of a moving car. Samlin Jenita, who sustained 80 per cent burns, was rescued by Sardar Inamullhah, a Pakistan-origin pathologist, and sent home.

    Crime does not know race and nationality. Where there are people, there is crime and cheating. Have we forgotten this guy (white, if you want to know) who killed his pregnant wife and threw her in the river?

    Absolutely, but this MO is exclusive among South Asians.

  6. Gana Says:

    Hmmm…the last one is not an Infosys employee. Only CNN-IBN carried him as an Infosys employee and they also withdraw once they understood it is not the same person!

  7. GaramChai Says:

    The act is certainly deplorable and also sad that it happened to be an Non Resident Indian (NRI).. but it could have been just about anyone else, not just a desi venting out …

    […] Oh, and this is not just inside India. As churumuri puts it, you can take the Indian out of India, but can you take India out of the Indian? […]
