A young Indian student, pursuing his Ph.D. in molecular and developmental biology at a university in the US’ Ohio state, was fatally shot in his car. Twenty-six-year-old Aaditya Adlakha, who was pursuing his Ph.D. in molecular and developmental biology at the University of Cincinnati Medical School, was shot on November 9 and died two days later.

The fourth-year doctoral student was found with multiple gunshot wounds inside a vehicle that had crashed into a wall and was rushed to UC Medical Center in Cincinnati in critical condition, where he succumbed to his injuries.

No arrests have been made since the shooting was reported, according to local media reports.

Adlakha’s demise has been termed as “sudden, tragic, and senseless” by the medical school, which issued a statement expressing its condolences to his family and friends.

“Today, you might have seen news reports of his sudden, tragic and senseless death. Those who knew him, along with fellow students and others who may not have had the fortune to have met Aaditya, may experience a wide variety of reactions, which are understandable and expected,” Senior Vice President of Health Affairs and Dean, University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, Andrew Filak said.

“He was much-loved, exceedingly kind and humorous, intelligent and sharp, whose research was described as novel and transformative. The focus of his work was to better understand neuroimmune communication and how neuroimmune interactions might contribute to pain and the inflammatory landscape in ulcerative colitis,” Filak was quoted as saying by WLWT.com, a television station in Cincinnati.

On November 9, Cincinnati Police Lt. Jonathan Cunningham said officers found a man shot inside a vehicle that crashed into a wall on the upper deck of the Western Hills Viaduct.

ShotSpotter, a gunfire locator service, reported there was gunfire in the area around 6:20 am, police said. Drivers passing by called 911 to report a vehicle that had bullet holes in it with a person inside who had been shot, said Cunningham.

Adlakha came to Cincinnati from north India to continue his education in medicine. He got his bachelor’s degree in Zoology in 2018 from Ramjas College of the University of Delhi in New Delhi.

He received his master’s degree in physiology in 2020 from All India Institute of Medical Sciences, also in New Delhi. His vehicle was hit multiple times. There were at least three bullet holes visible in the driver’s side window.

“As a college and as Aaditya’s academic home, we extend our deepest condolences to his family and to those who knew him as a friend and colleague,” the Cincinnati Enquirer quoted the medical school as saying.
