Tanzanian student case: Girl was not paraded naked in Bangalore, says Minister; 5 held


The Karnataka Government has ordered an inquiry by Central Crime Branch into alleged assault on a Tanzanian girl student after a road mishap in the city on January 31 night. Karnataka Home Minister Dr.G.Parameswara said in a press meet in Bengaluru today that five people were arrested in connection with the case.

Denying that the girl was stripped and paraded naked, the Minister said that neither she was stripped nor paraded naked and the allegations are baseless. He said that all protections were given to foreign students studying in the State.

The home minister said that Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has also spoken to External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj in this regard and assured an inquiry into the alleged incident.

The victim, a BBM student and her three friends were allegedly attacked by an angry mob after a 35-year-old female pedestrian was knocked down by another car belonging to Sudanese student on January 31.

The mob beat up the students and set their car on fire. The incident came to light on Tuesday when the victim approached All African Students Union following which a complaint was raised to Tanzanian Embassy.

The police later called the victim to record her statement based on media reports and have picked up few suspects.

Meanwhile, National Women Commission Chairperson Lalitha Kumaramangalam has registered a case suo moto and served a notice on the Karnataka Government.

Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi also sought a detail report about the incident from the Chief Minister.
