Bengaluru: In yet another incident of a racist attack, a 25-year-old Manipuri youth was allegedly attacked by three people here, reports said on Thursday.
The youth from the northeast state has registered a complaint with the police. The 25-year-old, who was badly injured has been hospitalised.
The latest incident comes a month after, three students from the northeast were beaten in October in the city for not speaking Kannada.
Bengaluru is home to around 240,000 people from the northeast. In 2012, a rumour that they will be attacked had led to a mass exodus before things were brought under control by the state government.
In a similar incident, three students, including a girl, belonging to the northeast region, were allegedly beaten up by some residents of Lajpat Nagar area of Delhi in the month of October.
According to police, the three youths are residents of Assam and are pursuing a course in photography. The incident took place when they were taking photographs in the city’s Prakash Colony.
