India has taken a strong stand on the issue of the death of 23-year-old Indian-origin girl Jhanvi Kandula in a collision with a police vehicle in Seattle, USA in January this year. India expressed strong objection to the video captured in the policeman's body camera in front of the US officials. Actually, a video of policeman Daniel Orderer laughing and making fun of Jhanvi's death had surfaced and this shameful incident was recorded in the video.
The Consulate General of India in San Francisco on Wednesday described the incident as worrying.

Jahnvi Kandula, a 23-year-old Indian student at Northeastern University's campus in South Lake Union, was walking near Dexter Avenue North and Thomas Street on January 23 when she was struck by a Seattle police vehicle. The impact was so strong that she fell far away. Kevin Dave was driving the vehicle.
Let us tell you that the accused policeman Daniel Orderer, who laughed in the video, was assigned to investigate this case, but he unknowingly left his body camera on. All of Order's actions were caught on camera, in which she was heard laughing and saying that Kandula's life had "limited value" and just wrote a check for $11,000, she was 26 years old anyway.
The orderer had also said that Dave was driving at a speed of 80 kilometers per hour. However, an investigation in June found that Dave's vehicle was traveling at a rate of 120 kilometers per hour, while the posted limit was 40 kilometers per hour.
