Mob attack on Tanzanian woman renews concerns about racism in India

Mob attack on Tanzanian woman renews concerns about racism in India

A mob attack against a Tanzanian woman in India's high-tech capital has renewed questions about racism in the country, particularly against African immigrants.

The Tanzanian student was apparently pulled from her car, stripped and sexually assaulted in the city of Bangalore on Sunday night, authorities said. Police on Thursday arrested five people in connection with the incident, the Karnataka state Chief Minister K. Siddarmaiah told reporters.

The 21-year old university student in business management told police that a mob pulled her out of a car and set it ablaze. Later, she told police, she was beaten, molested, stripped and paraded naked.
