Centre reacts to actor's spotlight on dancer's murder in US.

The Indian government has affirmed its engagement with US authorities concerning the investigation into the tragic murder of esteemed Kuchipudi dancer, Amarnath Ghosh, in Missouri. Ghosh, pursuing an MFA in Dance at Washington University in Saint Louis, fell victim to a fatal shooting while on an evening stroll. The Indian consulate in Chicago has assured constant monitoring of the investigation and maintained communication with local law enforcement. Expressing deep condolences, the embassy conveyed its commitment to supporting Ghosh's family and friends, emphasizing the pursuit of justice through forensic examination and collaboration with authorities.

The incident, initially brought to light by television actor Devoleena Bhattacharjee, prompted appeals for assistance from Indian authorities. Bhattacharjee's plea to Prime Minister Narendra Modi underscored the urgency of the situation, highlighting Ghosh's untimely demise and the absence of immediate family to seek justice. The actor's emotional post shed light on Ghosh's promising life, describing him as an exceptional dancer pursuing a PhD, tragically cut short by the senseless act of violence.

Amarnath Ghosh's legacy as a proficient dancer spans multiple styles, honed through training at the esteemed Kalakshetra Academy in Chennai. Notably, he received a National Scholarship for Kuchipudi from the International Cultural Ministry, demonstrating his dedication and talent in the art form. Trained under renowned mentors such as Bobita Dey Sarkar, Sri M.V. Narasimhachari, and Padma Sri Adyar K Lakshman, Ghosh's passion for dance and his contributions to the cultural landscape were widely acknowledged and celebrated.

This heartbreaking incident adds to a concerning trend of violence against individuals of Indian descent or Indian-Americans in the United States. Ghosh's untimely death joins a string of tragic events, including the recent shooting of an Indian-origin motel owner in North Carolina and the fatal assault on an Indian-origin IT executive in Washington. These incidents underscore the need for heightened awareness and proactive measures to ensure the safety and security of all individuals, regardless of their background, in the United States.
