New Delhi: A few days ago a student Tanzanian was stripped and beaten over a fatal accident in Bengaluru that was a horror incident in which she had no role.
External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Wednesday said that she is “deeply ungratified over the shameful incident”.
She said that she had spoken to Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and asked him to take strict action against the culprit.
“It is a case of road rage, not a racist attack,” Bengaluru Police Commissioner said. “No racism in Bangalore, I can assure full security to African community.” He further said that the police initially had no knowledge about the assault on the woman.
Last Sunday, a mob in Bengaluru mistakenly aimed a 21-year-old African student for an accident which has snowballed into a major controversy.
The mob reportedly thrashed her and tore off her clothes when she protested and pleaded them to leave her alone.
