Indian-American arrested in Mexico for shooting US diplomat

Tuesday, January 10, 2017

Washington/Mexico City: A 31-year-old man from India has been arrested in Mexico's Guadalajara city for allegedly shooting an American diplomat over a possible visa row.

The US diplomat was shot by a man wearing a black wig and a blue nurse uniform outside a shopping center's garage on Friday in Guadalajara, Mexico's second largest city.

The suspect was arrested in a joint operation by the FBI, DEA and Jalisco state officials in Guadalajara's affluent Providencia neighbourhood early Sunday morning, reports said.

A spokesperson at the Jalisco state prosecutor's office identified the suspect as a naturalised American from India named Zafar Zia, suggesting the shooting may have been related to a dispute over a visa, The Daily Beast reported.

Zia, at the time of his arrest, had in his possession a .38-caliber pistol and a wig, it said.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)You could be running behind schedule in a certain assignment. In your anxiety to get things done in a hurry you could end up over looking some important details. Your plans to make up for lost time at home could also run into some rough weather because of the attitude of a family member. Try not to be overly sensitive with loved ones but look on the positive side of all that you have. Perhaps you are taking a lot for granted.
