New York/panchkula, Jan 29

A 25-year-old Indian student, who recently earned an MBA degree in the US, was hammered to death by a homeless drug addict whom he had been helping for the past couple of days in Georgia state’s Lithonia city.

The horrifying incident was caught on camera when assailant Julian Faulkner mercilessly struck Vivek Saini nearly 50 times on the head with a hammer.

Saini, a part-time worker at a gas station that sheltered Faulkner, had shown kindness to the accused for almost two days and provided him with chips, a coke, water and even a jacket for warmth, M9 News Channel reported on Sunday.

However, Saini was struck on January 16 while going home as he, concerned over safety, requested Faulkner to depart or face police intervention. The police, who arrived at the scene, found Faulkner standing over Saini’s lifeless body.

The young student, who had migrated to the US two years ago after completing his BTech, had recently earned an MBA. Saini’s family lives at Bhagwanpur village in Panchkula. The family received his body and cremated it on January 25. Aghast by the death of their elder son, the family wants legal assistance to fight a legal battle in the US. — PTI/
