Father assails Allston slaying inquiry

No arrests made yet in shooting

The father of a Boston University graduate student who was shot and killed four months ago in Boston’s Allston neighborhood has criticized Boston police for not making an arrest in the slaying and expressed fear that the investigation was “losing momentum.”

Kanagala Sudhakar Rao, a bank manager in Bhubaneswar, India, said he has asked Indian diplomats in the United States to press the police to solve the April 19 slaying of his son Kanagala Seshadri Rao, a 24-year-old enrolled in a master’s program at the BU School of Management. No arrests have been made, though the father said he has passed clues on to the police.
