Bengaluru: The Karnataka government today ordered the suspension of another senior police official in connection with the alleged assault and stripping of a Tanzanian woman student.

Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) AN Pise of Yeshwanthpur division has been suspended for dereliction of duty, Police commissioner NS Megharikh said, a day after a team of Tanzanian high commissioner John WH Kijazi, also the dean of the African Diplomatic Corps, and External Affairs ministry officials flew in here and met state officials and African students.

The development takes the tally of suspended policemen to six, including the ACP, an inspector and four constables.

The Tanzanian envoy had earlier backed the steps taken by the government in connection with the incident on Sunday. "We are very much impressed with the action already taken," Kijazi had said, dismissing the talk about racism.

Nine people have been arrested in connection with the incident in which the 21-year old Tanzanian student faced mob fury in vigilante justice after a Sudanese driving a car in an alleged drunken state struck a couple, killing a woman on the spot. Police have maintained it was a case of "mistaken identity" and racism was not involved.

Meanwhile, the African students in Bengaluru are planning to conduct a blood donation drive in a show of solidarity to their Indian counterparts and citizens.
