AP student killed in US; parents wait for his return

Kumar's father Dhondiba Rao (70), a cardiac patient, and his mother Sakuntala have not been told about the death of their younger son.
Sakuntala has been told Kumar was seriously injured in an accident and she believes her son would return home.

The family members and friends of the 26-year-old student feel the parents may not be able to digest the shock and also the agony of waiting for his body for days together, Kumar's close friend S Anoop told PTI.

The family and friends now eagerly await Kumar's body.
They met Andhra Pradesh Home Minister P Sabita Reddy yesterday and sought help in getting the body back as early as possible.
Anoop said he also met Chief Secretary S V Prasad and other officials and the request has been forwarded to the American Embassy.

He said Kumar's friends in the US and the Telugu Association of North America (TANA) have been coordinating with the officials in America on sending the body here.
A post-mortem has been conducted on Kumar's body, Anoop said.
