New Delhi: Congress leader Manish Tewari on Monday described the attack on a couple hailing from the North-East of the country as unfortunate and called for swift action against the guilty.
"It`s extremely unfortunate these attacks on our people from the north-east. They are an integral part and parcel of our country. There is a need to give the people of the north-east a feeling of emotional unity. Whenever such incidents comes to light, swiftest actions must be taken against the culprits, to give our brethren from the north-east a feeling, that whichever is the government or the Indian state is as sensitive to their security as the security of anybody else," Tewari told a news agency.
On Sunday night, a couple from the North-East was allegedly attacked by four men in Nathupur in Gurgaon, in yet another incident of an alleged hate crime against people hailing from that region.
This incident has taken place days after a Manipuri man was murdered in the wee hours of national capital`s Kotla Mubarakpur area.
