New Delhi – India has promised swift punishment after a student
from Congo was fatally attacked in New Delhi.
Wednesday's comment by the Foreign Ministry comes after several
African missions demanded the government take steps to ensure the safety of
Africans living in India.
The victim in the attack, Masunda Kitada Oliver, was a graduate
student who had lived in India for over six years, according to the Congolese
Embassy in New Delhi. He had hailed an auto rickshaw on Friday night when three
men insisted they had hired the vehicle. The men beat him up and hit him on the
head with a stone, and he died later that night, police said.
Two of the men suspected in the attack have been arrested, while
police are searching for the third.
