Following the death of the Nigerian man on Sunday, tension erupted in the area as a crowd gathered outside the Tilak Nagar police station.

The friends and family of the victim alleged that the Nigerian national died because of a lathi injury inflicted on him by a Delhi Police personnel in Tilak Nagar.

“Today morning, a Nigerian national was brought dead to DDU Hospital at around 3:30 am. The victim used to live in Tilak Nagar. Two other Nigerian nationals who were with him alleged that he died because of a lathi injury on his head,” the police said.

“Earlier today, 3 Nigerian citizens were stopped by Delhi Police officials for verification in the Tilak Nagar area. While being asked to show their ID proof, the three immediately ran away and the policemen ran after them. Their families later alleged that he died because of a lathi injury,” the police added.

Police also said that they have grabbed a CCTV footage wherein the victim could be seen stepping out of an auto-rickshaw and sitting near a shop. He then collapsed, hitting his head on the ground. There was nobody around him, they said.

The protesters are demanding to see the cctv footage of the incident but the police has refused to release it, as at the time of filing in this report.
