New Delh/Bengaluru: In what has caused acute embarrassment to New Delhi, the Indian Government on Wednesday evening expressed its “deep pain” and “regret” to Tanzania over a “shameful” incident in Bengaluru where  a mob reportedly attacked and stripped a  Tanzanian woman in the Karnataka capital on Sunday night — after a furious Tanzania issued a ‘note verbale’ to India about the reported attacks on African students in Bengaluru.
