At least four Nigerian students were allegedly attacked by a group of locals in Pari Chowk, Noida. The protest was conducted after a death of an 18-year-old boy in Greater Noida.

The incident came into the limelight after the death of a class 12th student in Greater Noida, due to the drug overdose, in which five Nigerian students who were living in the neighborhood were booked and detained in connection with the case.

Although, the Nigerian student was released following the lack of evidence against them, but the police officials have registered a case under section 307 of the Indian Penal Code and have detained five people.

It was reported that the victim, identified as Manish Khari, who is the student of class 12th was forced to inhale a particular kind of stuff by a dark skinned person, following which he died. It was learned that Nigerian students were booked under murder, kidnapping and using drugs, but soon they were free due to lack of evidence.

Following this, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj has spoken to the newly elected Uttar Pradesh’s Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.

Sushma Swaraj moved to twitter to express her concerned over the matter in which she posted:

“I have asked for a report from Government of Uttar Pradesh about the reported attack on African students in Noida”.
