Cops to regularly interact with African students

The Karnataka police will now have regular interaction with African students studying in Bengaluru and other cities of the State to ensure their security.

A mechanism for regular interaction between the police and the students from Africa was devised in the wake of the recent assault on a Tanzanian girl in Bengaluru, official spokesperson for the Ministry of External Affairs Vikas Swarup said.

The decision to have the mechanism was taken after a team of MEA officials accompanied the High Commissioner of Tanzania, John W H Kijazi, to Bengaluru and met Karnataka Home Minister G Parameshwara, senior police officials and representatives of the students from Africa. Swarup said that while 12 people had been arrested in connection with the assault on the Tanzanian, six policemen had been suspended.
