New Delhi, Feb 4 (IANS) Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday sought a report from the Karnataka government on the assault by a mob on a Tanzanian woman in Bengaluru.
“Strongly condemn incident with the Tanzanian lady in Bangalore. Police must act strongly against the culprits. Rahul Gandhi asks Karnataka Govt to explain and send report immediately,” Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh tweeted.
Five people suspected of assaulting the Tanzanian woman were arrested early on Thursday, Bengaluru Police Commissioner N.S. Megharik said.
A mob of people attacked and allegedly stripped the Tanzanian woman, a management institute student, after dragging her out of a car she was travelling in along with her three friends on Bengaluru outskirts on Sunday. Her friends were also beaten up.
Megharik said the mob mistook her as one involved in an accident nearby in which a woman was run over.
