Mitesh Patel, 33, who moved from Gujarat’s Anand district, to the US in 2002, was about to step out of his liquor store when he was attacked by unidentified assailants who shot him dead after robbing cash.
Mitesh’s brother said he and the family in Anand were informed of the death by relatives in the US. He is survived by his wife Bhumika and a 7-year-old daughter Vriksha.
Mitesh’s brother-in-law was in the washroom when the incident took place. He said Mitesh had even handed over the cash to the assailants who shot him.
