Bangalore, Oct 5 (ANI): Reacting to reports that Indian wrestlers had attacked a group of youths after they were racially abused in Australia, External Affairs Minister S.M Krishna has said students should not take the law in their hands.

Talking to reporters here on Monday, Krishna said although self-defence was fundamental in nature, students should not take the law in their hands.

"I don't recommend that students should take law into their own hands. I think the incidents of attack on Indian students are tapering of. There are here and there some reported incidents," he added.

According to reports, Indian spectators leaving a Kabaddi match in Melbourne on Sunday night attacked a group of youths after they were racially abused.

Talking about tensions on the India-China border, Krishna said that it was the most tranquil and peaceful border.

"The Indo-Chinese border which is large, which is not demarcated as yet is one of the most peaceful and tranquil borders. There are certain incidents but we have evolved a mechanism, whenever incidents of incursions occur then we have a mechanism put in place, so that at the field level itself things are settled and things are sorted out. So I don't think that we should be carried away by such reports," he added.

Anger over troop deployments, reports of border incursions, and a high-pitched media debate have reignited strains between China and India over long-festering border disputes in the Himalayas region. (ANI)
