External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Monday sought report from the Uttar Pradesh Government over the attack on four Nigerian students, who sustained severe injuries after being assaulted by a group of local residents in Greater Noida’s Pari Chowk area.

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

The incident comes as locals protested following the death of a Class 12 student in Greater Noida’s NSG Black Cats Enclave due to suspected drug overdose and five Nigerian students living in the neighbourhood were booked – and later detained – in connection with the case. The students were later released for lack of evidence.
