Sikh civil rights group, Sikh Coalition, has urged members of the Sikh-American community to exercise caution and be extra vigilant in the wake of the shootout in Olathe of Kansas that left one Indian engineer dead and two others, including a US citizen, injured.

The Sikh Coalition, which said its prayers go out to the family of Srinivas Kuchibhotla, urged “every Sikh-American to exercise extra vigilance and caution during this period of heightened vulnerability.”

It urged members of the community to call law enforcement immediately if they have been a victim of hate violence or received threats of violence.
