Jaahnavi Kandula's untimely demise is not merely a personal tragedy but also shines an unforgiving light on the treatment of immigrant students in the United States.
However, this incident has forcefully highlighted the dire need for compassion, empathy, and justice, especially when it pertains to individuals who arrive in the USA, chasing their dreams and academic aspirations.
Many Indian social media user expressed their emotions towards the police brutality and posted Justice for Jaahnavi. One of the social media users took to the comment section and stated, “So sad. “Limited value.” Very much disturbed by his words. Om shanti. Justice must be served.”
While another one added, “This is disgusting and not a professional behavior of police officers in US. Most of the police officers are very professional and care about people and our communities. I hope the Seattle PD is going to take the right steps to address this kind of behavior”.
