News of Srinivas Kuchibhotla’s death following an alleged hate attack in the U.S. left teachers at his alma mater shocked. The Vidya Jyothi Institute of Technology located on the city outskirts has decided to hold a condolence gathering in memory of its student on Monday.

“We fondly remember him as ‘Seenu’ of room number 245. He was a calm person,” said B.G. Reddy, one of Mr. Kuchibhotla’s teachers at the engineering college from where he graduated in 2005 as an Electronics and Electrical Engineer. “He was among the bright lot and enjoyed sport.”

Never missed classes

Dr. Reddy said Mr. Kuchibhotla rode his bike to college and never missed his classes. “He knew how to balance education with his passion for sport. He was not the kind to argue with his teachers or pick up fights.”

The college would hold a condolence gathering on Monday in memory of its student, college’s director P. Venugopal Reddy said.
