Kenyan woman pulled out of auto, thrashed in Noida

New Delhi: Another attack on Africans in the the national capital.

A Kenyan woman on her way to college in an autorickshaw was stopped, pulled out of the auto and thrashed by unknown men, who fled thereafter. The incident occurred at Knowledge Park in Greater Noida. The woman was admitted to Kailash Hospital, but discharged shortly thereafter.

This is third attack since Monday on Africans in and around Delhi.

In one attack, which has been caught on mobile video, a Nigerian student was beaten with steel dustbins, kicked and punched by a large mob inside a mall in Greater Noida near Delhi. The attacks began with a protest march in Greater Noida over the death of a Class 12 student, which turned violent.

The protesters alleged that Nigerians supplying drugs were the reason the boy died, although a drug overdose has not been confirmed. During the march, the protesters spotted three Africans near a shop and attacked them brutally.
