Sunayana Dumala, the widow of Indian national Srinivas Kuchibhotla killed in Kansas in a hate crime this February, faced deportation from the US after her husband’s murder until a Kansas congressman and others helped her get a one-year visa.

Sunanya lost her status as US resident after a 51-year-old US Navy veteran Adam Purinton with a semiautomatic pistol gunned down her husband in a crowded bar on February 22.
