Earlier on Tuesday, an association of African students demanded adequate security after the assault on Nigerians in Greater Noida even as the UP government assured a thorough probe into the incident.
Earlier this week, a mob thrashed four Nigerian nationals following the death of a teenager. Local residents claimed that the Manish Khari, 19, died of drug overdose and was seen last with a group of Nigerians. The Greater Noida police booked over 1000 people and arrested five in connection with the case.
Meanwhile, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj also said the central government was taking immediate action and that she had spoken to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Adityanath Yogi who had assured her of a fair and impartial investigation into this 'unfortunate' incident.
