Newsline: Tanzanian students seek embassy help in India

A group of students from Tanzania including a 21-year-old girl who were allegedly beaten up and molested by an angry mob before setting fire to their car in Soladevanahalli are running from pillar to post to get their complaint registered. The incident occurred when the victims who are Business Management students of Acharya College were on their way to the city, some time after a Sudanese student knocked down a 32-year-old woman pedestrian, killing her on the spot. A mob beat Mohammed Ahad Ismail, (20) and set fire to his car before handing him over to the police. Another mob attacked the group of students passing by the same road half-an-hour later. One of the victims said that the mob pulled out the students and bashed them up while the girl was molested and her cloths were torn in the melee. The victims managed to escape while the mob turned their car upside down before setting it on fire. The students reached Soladevanahalli to file a complaint but said the police refused to take up the complaint, asking them to fetch the persons involved in the road accident. The victims later approached their association who in turn decided to approach the Tanzanian Embassy for help.
