Three-four incidents of assaulting African nationals have been reported from Delhi in the last few days. In one case a Congolese  was beaten to death. The assaulted include a priest and citizens of Uganda and South Africa.

Whether it is racial attack or otherwise, such attacks and assaults on foreign nationals should be seriously dealt with and the culprits punished. But the Delhi Police and the government of India are considering these as minor incidents and dealt with as such.

The government should understand that such assaults on foreign nationals have serious implications. If not dealt with strongly, such incidents may increase. Relation with the foreign governments will deteriorate.

Government should act immediately and sternly.
