Man from Manipur Beaten Up by Two People in Gurgaon, Admitted to Hospital

Gurgaon, Jul 28 :  Just a few days after a man from Manipur was beaten to death in Delhi, another person from the state has been beaten up in the national capital's suburb Gurgaon.

The 35-year-old victim was reportedly attacked near his house by two men and has been admitted to hospital. The motive of the attack is still not clear.

Last week, Salouni - a former call centre employee from Manipur - was severely beaten up by five men in a road rage case. The police took a badly injured Salouni to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences or AIIMS, where he was declared dead.

Activists from the North East have alleged that his death was a "hate crime" and another in a long list of cases of racial discrimination in the capital.

Earlier this year, Nido Tania, a 20-year-old student from Arunachal Pradesh died after being beaten with iron rods and sticks by a group of men in a market in Delhi's Lajpat Nagar, not far from where Shaloni died.

Nido's death had led to street protests and a national debate on discrimination against Indians from the North East.
