26-Year-Old Indian PhD Student Shot Dead In Car In US


A 26-year-old Indian PhD student has died of bullet injuries in Ohio, US. He was shot inside his car that crashed into a wall on the upper deck of the Western Hills Viaduct on November 9. Aaditya Adlakha was a fourth-year doctoral student in the molecular and developmental biology programme at the University of Cincinnati Medical School, WXIX-TV reported citing a statement from the medical school, as per PTI. The university has described the incident as “sudden, tragic and senseless”.

Adlakha died earlier this month at the UC Medical Center, according to the Hamilton County Coroner’s Office, the agency reported. Cincinnati Police Lt. Jonathan Cunningham said officers found a man shot inside a vehicle.

Adlakha was transported to UC Medical Center where he was in critical condition and was pronounced dead two days later. His vehicle was hit multiple times. There were at least three bullet holes visible in the driver’s side window, the agency said in the report.

Police said that ShotSpotter, a gunfire locator service, reported there was gunfire in the area around 6:20 am. Cunningham said that drivers passing by called 911 to report a vehicle that had bullet holes in it with a person inside who had been shot, reported PTI.

No arrests have been made since the shooting was reported, local media reports said.

“As a college and as Aaditya’s academic home, we extend our deepest condolences to his family and to those who knew him as a friend and colleague,” the Cincinnati Enquirer quoted the medical school as saying. 

“Today, you might have seen news reports of his sudden, tragic and senseless death. Those who knew him, along with fellow students and others who may not have had the fortune to have met Aaditya, may experience a wide variety of reactions, which are understandable and expected,” Senior Vice President of Health Affairs and Dean, University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, Andrew Filak said, as quoted by PTI.

“He was much-loved, exceedingly kind and humorous, intelligent and sharp, whose research was described as novel and transformative. The focus of his work was to better understand neuroimmune communication and how neuroimmune interactions might contribute to pain and the inflammatory landscape in ulcerative colitis.” Filak was quoted as saying by WLWT.com, a television station in Cincinnati.

Adlakha came to Cincinnati from India to continue his education in medicine. He poured Zoolong in graduation in 2018 from Ramjas College of the University of Delhi in New Delhi. He completed his master’s degree in physiology in 2020 from All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), in Delhi.
