CROWDS ATTACK AFRICANS IN INDIA AFTER TEEN’S DEATH

No Rating

Hundreds of residents of an Indian city where a teenage boy died of a suspected drug overdose went on a violent rampage against Africans, using steel chairs to attack shoppers in a local shopping centre.

The riots broke out late on Monday after police in Greater Noida, a satellite city of New Delhi, released five African students detained over the youth’s death, saying they had no evidence against them.

One television station showed an angry mob hitting a car with sticks, while another showed dozens of attackers using steel chairs to hit shoppers in a mall.

Police said 10 people had been wounded, while India’s foreign minister said authorities were investigating the attacks.

“There will be a fair and impartial investigation into this unfortunate incident,” Sushma Swaraj tweeted.

In a Facebook post, the Association of African Students in India told its members to stay indoors and not attend lectures on Tuesday for fear of possible attacks.

Africans living in India frequently face discrimination
