Meanwhile, taking a serious note on the arising situation, the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath assured that there will be fair and impartial probe into this unfortunate incident, said EAM Sushma Swaraj.
Sushma Swaraj spoke to Adityanath on Tuesday morning after an African student, Sadiq Bello, tweeted her to “act fast” as living in Noida, he said, was becoming a “life threatening issue” for Africans.
According to police, three African students were attacked by a group of residents in Greater Noida’s Pari Chowk area in Uttar Pradesh on Monday.
“The attack took place in Ansal Plaza Mall in Greater Noida. The African students were attacked after protests over the death of Manish Khatri, a Class 12 student in Greater Noida’s NSG Society,” Superintendent of Police Sujata Singh told IANS.
Khatri reportedly died of cardiac arrest due to suspected drug overdose on Saturday.
Singh said three FIRs had been registered against seven people for rioting. “A few of them have been detained while a hunt is on for the others.”
She added the deceased may have been depressed.
