Attacking the Congress-led state government for not acting on locals’ complaint regarding the “wrong” behaviour of certain foreign students, Gowda sought Central government’s intervention to find the truth about the assault on Sunday night.

If state government cannot control law and order situation then it will lead to much bigger problem in the days to come. I urge upon the government to constitute a special squad to monitor foreign students.

Holding the state government responsible for the death of the woman, Gowda said government and authorities should have kept a watch on the earlier developments and taken adequate law and order measures.

I have come to know that more than thousands of students are staying here and functioning even after their Visa having expired.

He also demanded a compensation of Rs 25 lakh for the family of the victim, pointing out that two children have lost their mother.

A team including the Tanzanian High Commissioner, who is also the Dean of the African Diplomatic Corps, is visiting Bengaluru on Friday. City police have so far arrested nine persons in connection with this case.
