Hyderabad: Close on the heels of the attack on a Nigerian student in the Tolichowki area a few days ago, a Nigerian techie was attacked in Bowenpally area on Monday night.

He fell down and while he was about to get up the bikers came back to attack him. “I saw them and tried to escape but they abused me. In my eight years in Hyderabad, I have never faced such a situation,” said Sohail.

 

Later, he rushed home and with the help of some of his friends and filed a complaint with the police.

“We made a general diary entry of the complaint and started investigation. Based on the investigation we will proceed,” said Bowenpally inspector N. Kiran.
