However, he was not generally known to police in Olathe, a city of 134,000 people about 25 miles (40 km) southeast of Kansas City, Sergeant Logan Bonney said by phone on Friday.The Trump administration may also have skilled Indian workers like Kuchibhotla in mind as it considers curbing the H-1B visa program, worrying both India's $150 billion IT services industry and Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government.Kavipriya Muthuramalingam, a former colleague of the victim, said his friend was one of the nicest, most gentle people one could meet.
