HYDERABAD: The body of Indian software engineer Vamshi Reddy Mamidala, who was shot dead in the Us, was brought home on Friday.

The parents of the 27-year-old received the body at Rajiv Gandhi International Airport here. It was later taken to his native Warangal district.

A pall of gloom descended on Vangapahad village as family members, relatives and villagers gathered to bid tearful adieu to Vamshi Reddy.

Leaders of various political parties paid their last respects too.

The techie was shot dead by an alleged drug addict in Milpitas, California on February 10, in the garage of his apartment building. The drug addict was trying to flee after robbing a woman.

Police later arrested the accused, identified as Stuart Baronngaue, 30.

Vamshi Reddy had gone to the US in 2015 for studies. He was now working part-time.

According to his family members, he was looking for a permanent job but had told his father over phone a few days ago that the changed political climate in the US might not help his quest.

His father had told him to return to India if he couldn't find a job.
