The Kenyan lady was reportedly dragged out of her taxi and beaten by unknown assailants while returning to her home Greater Noida, a satellite city outside India’s capital New Delhi, AFP reports.

A senior Police Officer Sujata Singh told AFP,

“She has lodged a formal complaint and alleged that four to five men attacked her. We have launched an investigation,” senior police officer .

The occurrence took place despite the efforts of the police to step up security in the city's suburbs where mobs reportedly attacked a group of Africans with sticks and metal chairs.

As earlier reported, five suspects have been arrested by the police in connection with the attacks with at least four others still at large.

Security checkpoints have since been put in place and patrols increased as part of the manhunt.
