Two Indian nationals, a mother and her six-year-old son, from Andhra Pradesh were found dead in their New Jersey home on 23 March, 2017.
According to sources, when Narra Hanumanth Rao reached home after work on 23 March, 2017, he found his wife Shashikala and son Aneesh murdered in their apartment.
Rao works in CTS and has been living in New Jersey for nine years. An investigation is underway.
The incident comes when there has been a recent surge of hate crimes against Indians in the U.S.
Earlier this month in March, 2017, a Sikh man was shot and wounded in Washington State by an attacker who approached him in his driveway and told him to leave the country.
