New Delhi, Feb 6 IANS | 11 months ago

Demanding an anti-racism law, hundreds of students from the country's northeastern states held a protest here Thursday.

The students held protest at Jantar Mantar over the killing of 19-year-old Nido Tania, who died Jan 30 after he was beaten up by shopkeepers in a south Delhi market following a quarrel over his appearance and clothing.

The victim's friends say it was a racial attack.

"We have been given enough assurances, but hardly any strong action has been taken in the entire matter," said a student, adding that the political leaders' visit was just to sympathise and not to take action against Tania's attackers.

A delegation of parliamentarians from the northeast also met the Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi and demanded a anti-racism law in the country.
