Video: Three African Students Narrowly Escaped Being Launched By Hundred Mobs In India

In a 6 minutue video posted on YouTube shows three Africans attacked by hundreds  India mob in Delhi.. Although the video or report did not state clear what the men had done to incite the attack, one of at least four witnesses who posted video of the incident on YouTube wrote that they were accused of “misbehaving with female passengers,” by making lewd comments to a woman on a train in rajiv chowk metro station.

Two of the boys who didn't want their name mentioned are from Gabon while the third is from Burkina Faso are students are pursuing their MBA in India.
 In the 6 minute video, the boys were seen trying to escape from the police booth but were lunched by the angry mobs. One of the mob tried pulling one of the boys down.While others were hitting them with sticks and smashing the glass of the booth. They were later rescued by the State police after some minutes later. Watch clip below...

According to police report, however, no such complaint was filed against the students, who denied sexually harassing anyone. Other witnesses reportedly told the police that one of the men had made an “anti-India” comment of some sort, “which led to the ruckus.”

After they were eventually rescued by police officers, the students were taken to a hospital, where one of them had a gash in his neck stitched up and spent the night. The authorities are reportedly studying surveillance footage from the station as they consider charging members of the crowd there with rioting.

The video evidence prompted anger and introspection from Indians on social networks and a discussion in the media of the racism experienced by Africans in India that is common but usually goes unreported.  ....
