On the other hand, student organizations and the various bodies have vehemently condemned the repeated incidents of racial attacks on the people from the north east. Three such incidents have sent no less shockwave across the north eastern region where the people demand exemplary punishments for the perpetrators.

Twenty four hours before it, two Naga youths were mercilessly beaten by goons in Gurgaon with hockey sticks and cricket bats bereft of any reason and asked them to quit the place.
