In an interview to a news agency, he said that such incidents takes place in other countries too.

Sharma’s remarks come after the outrage over the killing of a 23-year-old Congolese national MK Olivier in south Delhi’s Vasant Kunj area.



The envoys of the African nations, taking strong exception to killing of Congolese national Masonda Ketada Oliver had said they will not attend the “Africa Day” celebrations and demanded concrete steps against “racism and Afro-phobia.” However, the government heaved a sigh of relief when African diplomats agreed to attend the Africa Day event after the ministry of external affairs allayed their fears.

For the government the concern now is about the reports of attacks on Indian establishments in Congo’s capital Kinshasa.

The ministry of external affairs (MEA) handed over a “note verbale”, an unsigned diplomatic communication prepared in third person, to the Congo ambassador Felix Ngoma, asking him to ensure the safety of Indians in the African country. A similar note was handed over by Indian ambassador Ashok Warrier to the Congo foreign office in Kinshasa.
