Nigerian woman physically pinned down by cops in Bengaluru
Bengaluru: The police on Tuesday had to tie an inebriated Nigerian woman with a rope in a bid to restrain her after she allegedly attacked shopkeepers and policemen at National Market in Bengaluru on India.
Mariam, the Nigerian woman in late 20s, had to be physically pinned down before being sedated.
Meanwhile, the African Students’ Association has accused authorities of using excessive force.
“She was very angry. Her hands had been tied with a rope when she was brought in the auto. The man accompanying her had an injury near his eye,” a witness at the hospital said.
