New Delhi – India has promised swift punishment after a student from Congo was fatally attacked in New Delhi.

Wednesday's comment by the Foreign Ministry comes after several African missions demanded the government take steps to ensure the safety of Africans living in India.

The victim in the attack, Masunda Kitada Oliver, was a graduate student who had lived in India for over six years, according to the Congolese Embassy in New Delhi. He had hailed an auto rickshaw on Friday night when three men insisted they had hired the vehicle.
