Two Manipuri youths attacked in Delhi market
Two youths from Manipur were beaten up here late Sunday, police said Monday, just a few days after an alleged racial attack led to the death of a student from Arunachal Pradesh.
The youths were attacked by a group of motorbike riders in Ambedkar Nagar area of south Delhi around 8.30 p.m. Sunday.
One of the victims, reported to be in a serious condition, was admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, police said.
Ginkhansuan Naulak, 24, and his cousin Vumsuanmung Naulak, 25, went to the Ambedkar Nagar market when the attackers approached them and started beating them with sticks.
Ginkhansuan Naulak, who works in a private firm, told police that the attackers did not rob him or his cousin. He also said the attackers were not known to him.
In a similar incident that occurred Jan 29, 20-year-old Arunachal student Nido Tania was attacked by some shopkeepers in Lajpat Nagar in south Delhi that led to his death.
Tania's friends say the men ridiculed him for his blonde hair and hurled racial slurs at him, which triggered a fight.
