German teenager robbed and attacked in Delhi, accused absconding

In yet another attack on a foriegn national in India, a German teenager was attacked by a sharp weapon in the Geeta Colony area of the national capital on Friday night, according to ANI. 

The 19-year-old, identified as Benjamin Scolt, took an auto rickshaw from Delhi's Chandai Chowk area but the auto driver apparently asked another man to sit in the rickshaw along with Scolt and the duo later attacked him and robbed him of his cash. Following this, Scolt jumped out of the moving rickshaw and was later taken to the hospital by a passerby, according to  DNA. Meanwhile, External Affairs Minister, Sushma Swaraj took cognizance of the incident and tweeted that she had sought a report on the issue and asked the Delhi government to provide him with medical assistance.

The incident, coming just weeks after the 'racist' attack on two Nigerian nationals in Noida, yet again brought to the fore the security issues foriegn nationals face in India. In another attack from just days ago, a group of four foreign tourists was attacked and looted in Ajmer, and one of the women with them was molested, according to The Indian ExpressIn another ghastly attack from last month, a British woman was brutally raped and murdered in Goa, on Holi.
