Racism a motive behind Lancaster University killing?

British police investigating the killing of Indian student Anuj Bidve by a white man is not ruling out racism as a motive for the incident.

The unnamed white man had a brief conversation with Bidve, 23, when he and his other Indian friends were moving towards the Manchester city centre.

Chief Superintendent Kevin Mulligan, divisional commander for Salford, said a racial motive for the killing was not being ruled out. “We are investigating every possible aspect.”

Bidve was a postgraduate student at Lancaster University studying Microelectronics.

The police said the students, who had not been drinking, were walking towards the city centre and became aware of two men on the other side of the street.
