    Very sad incident. Don't argue with these type of guys, let manager/owner of the hotel handle this type of situation with the help of police.

    Indians are argumentative esp with blacks chinese and Hispanics wherever in the world.....with white people indians tend to be quiet even though white guy might be wrong.

    Yes. When we are working in other countries we should consider ourselves as slaves. Not Kings.

    Once again l mourn the tragic death of Abhishek... Humans tend to be territorial, we see these episodes, happening in our nation.... Local residents, always take offense to outsiders... on the streets, office, almost everywhere. This is very true for immigrants they are targeted for stealing jobs, spreading an alien culture n faith, even preying on local women !!!! Social media is used extensively to demonize these communities..... To protect themselves, they are forced to stay in ghettos, among their own brethren. This is the fundamental drawback of all immigration !!!!!

    the problem in most of the western countries is that they hate Indians regardless of caste. Sikhs are the most vulnerable with their headgear.

    As the years pass by all have to live only in the country or rather the state and district where they are born. Otherwise, there is always a danger of being killed or attacked for being an outsider.

    Abhishek death, will certainly bring doubts, perhaps fear, in the minds of young educated professionals.... but certainly the crazy onslaught, of migration, will never cease... rather it is increasingly year after year !!!!! 60 % of all IIT engineers, Medical professionals, migrate especially to the USA n other effluent nations !! The CEO of all international companies of repute, are all Indians !!!!!!
