26-year-old Indian PhD student shot dead in car in Ohio, USA

A 26-year-old Indian PhD student has died after being shot in Ohio, USA. He was shot on 9 November inside his car, which crashed into a wall on the upper deck of the Western Hills Viaduct. Aditya Adalkha was a fourth-year doctoral student in the molecular and developmental biology program at the University of Cincinnati Medical School, WXIX. According to PTI, the TV reported citing a statement from the medical school. The university described the incident as “sudden, tragic and senseless.”

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

Adalkha was taken to UC Medical Center where he was in critical condition and was pronounced dead two days later. His car was hit several times. At least three bullet holes were visible in the driver’s side window, the agency said in the report.

Police said ShotSpotter, a gunfire locator service, reported shots fired in the area around 6:20 a.m. Cunningham said passing drivers called 911 to report a vehicle that had been shot and a person inside who had been shot, PTI reported.

Local media reports said no arrests had been made since the shooting was reported.

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

“Today, you may 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 privilege of meeting Aditya, may have experienced a variety of reactions , which are understandable and expected,” Andrew Filk, senior vice president for health affairs and dean of the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, was quoted as saying by PTI.

“He was deeply loving, extremely 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 play a role in pain and the inflammatory landscape in ulcerative Colitis may contribute.” WLWT.com, a television station in Cincinnati, quoted Filak as saying.

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