India on Tuesday condemned the violence against three Nigerian nationals in Uttar Pradesh as "deplorable" and assured that it is committed to ensuring the safety and security of foreigners in India.

"Yesterday's (Monday's) incident in Greater Noida, in which several people of African origin were injured, is deplorable," External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Gopal Baglay said.


" Minister of State for External Affairs M.J. Akbar spoke to Nigeria's Acting High Commissioner and assured him of steps being taken by local authorities for the safety and security of Nigerian nationals," Baglay said. 


External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Tuesday said Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Aditya Nath Yogi had promised a "fair and impartial" probe.


"The government is committed to ensuring the safety and security of all foreigners in India. People from Africa, including students and youths, remain our valued partners," Baglay added.


According to police, three Nigerian students were attacked by a group of persons in Greater Noida's Pari Chowk area on Monday.


"The attack took place at the Ansal Plaza Mall in Greater Noida. The African students were attacked after protests over the death of Manish Khatri, a Class 12 student in Greater Noida's NSG Society," Superintendent of Police Sujata Singh told .
