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.
