Rerurn of racist attack: 1 held in Delhi

New Delhi: The Delhi police have arrested a 40-year-old man a week after he spat on a girl from Manipur and called her Corona triggering no less acrimony among the north eastern people.

According to information, he was picked up by a team led by Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of West Delhi from Mukherjee Nagar area on Wednesday.

Initially,  the individual called her Corona as he was riding a bike and as he girl objected to it in public he spat on her and vanished, said police.

Many organizations from the North East demanded arrest of the accused and exemplary punishment calling it a racist attack on the north eastern people.
