Ugandan murder: Cops object to social media post

The city police have taken strong objection to Africans posting mobile footage on social media of the murdered Ugandan national with the accused. The post that has been making rounds on Facebook, Whatsapp and Twitter says that it was a racial attack where the Indian man raped and murdered an African woman in her house. Bengaluru City police commissioner Praveen Sood said they were trying to trace down the Africans who are trying to not only instigate animosity, but also create social disharmony.

Preliminary investigations revealed that the murder took place over a fit of rage when the woman demanded more money from the accused than agreed upon previously for an alleged sexual favour. The city police have written to the Ugandan Embassy stating that the murder has nothing to do with racism as is being portrayed on social media. The city top brass has also directed the authorities concerned to prepare a list of overstaying foreigners, including Africans, in the city.
