Daughter of a former state top police official hailing from North-East has alleged that she was racially attacked by two women while shopping in the city.
Rachel Sangliana, daughter of former Bangalore Police Commissioner H T Sangliana, also former Member of Parliament, has alleged that a racial slur was passed against her by a woman and later attacked by her (woman) and another lady when she tried to defend herself.
“I, Born & brought up in Bangalore. Racial slurs thrown at me…Sure! – I’ve heard plenty!! Physically attacked by 1 woman & then later by the same woman along with another for defending myself due to racial slur – That’s a 1st timer!!” Rachel posted on her Facebook page on December7.
She has also said that three girls from Nagaland, a lady staff and a man accompanied by his teenage daughter came to her rescue, while 50 odd people watched.
“A HUGE Thank you to the 3 Naga girls for staying by my side till Nigel came to escort me home, and to the man, father & daughter…For offering to be witnesses. What has Bangalore come to?? I cannot believe what happened to me today!! Stay safe!! You will always have IGNORANT WILD people around you!!” she further stated.
She has however not explained what sparked the incident but it reportedly happened when she objected to the two women jumping the queue at a supermarket on Sunday.
However, DCP Bangalore South B S Lokesh Kumar said no case has been registered as no one has come forward to file a complaint.
