Adam Purinton, the man accused of killing Indian techie Srinivas Kuchibhotla and injuring two others at a suburban Kansas city bar, has been indicted on federal hate crime and firearms charges.    The indictment on Friday by a federal grand jury against Purinton, 51, of Olathe, Kansas, comes after a February 22 shooting at a city bar.   The indictment announced by the department of justice has accused Purinton of shooting and killing Kuchibhotla, and attempting to kill Alok Madasani, also an Indian national, because of their actual and perceived race, colour, religion and national origin.    Witnesses said Purinton yelled at the two Indian men to “get out of my country” before pulling the trigger in the attack.    Ian Grillot, a 24-year-old American man, was also injured while intervening in the shooting.   The  Rediff.com : 10th.
