Austin (US), July 19: An Indian student from Hyderabad was allegedly stabbed to death by his room-mate in Austin, the United States, on Monday (July 18) midnight.
The deceased was identified as Sankeerth while the accused is Sai Sandeep Goud. The latter is residing in the US as an employee.
The police were questioning Goud over the matter.
Sankeerth was enrolled in a Master of Science programme in the US. Goud checked into the former's room a fortnight ago after a consultency helped him get an accomodation there. Two more students resided in the same room. One of them said that Sankeerth had a quarrel with Goud but could not explain the reason for the argument that eventually led to Sankeerth's death.
Sankeerth, who hailed from Kachiguda in Hyderabad, went to the US two years ago on an H1B visa which he had received through a draw system.
