A mob attack on three terrified Africans in Delhi has raised new allegations of racism in India
(SOURCE) African student leaders have spoken out over the racism they face in India after a video captured an attack on three young African men by a large mob of Indians in one of the capital’s largest metro stations.
The men were forced to climb up on top of a station police booth as the baying mob thrashed at them with sticks and tried to pull them down.
The crowd forced its way into the empty police booth to try to grab the terrified Africans cowering on the roof. They were eventually rescued when a policeman arrived.
Many bystanders filmed the attack on their mobile phones and comments on their YouTube clips suggested they had “misbehaved” with women on a train.
But African students in the capital said it was the latest in a series of racially-motivated attacks based on the colour of their skin.
