Indian police arrest 4 in alleged assault of Tanzanian woman

04 February 2016, 14:12

New Delhi — Police on Wednesday arrested four Indian men for allegedly assaulting and stripping a female Tanzanian student after dragging her out of a car, India's external affairs minister said Wednesday.

The minister, Sushma Swaraj, tweeted that she was deeply pained over the "shameful incident" over the weekend in Bangalore, India's information technology hub. She said police have arrested four suspects.

Bosco Kaweesi, a legal advisor to the All African Students Union, said three of the student's Tanzanian friends in the car also were beaten up by an angry crowd following a car accident in the area.

Kaweesi called it a case of mistaken identity, saying the car was following the vehicle that hit a local woman, who died on Sunday.

He told reporters that the Tanzanian student was pushed out of a slow-moving bus when she tried to board it to escape the angry crowd.

The Press Trust of India news agency said the Tanzanian embassy in New Delhi asked the Indian government to punish the guilty and ensure safety and security of all African students in the country.
