In a shocking turn of events, around 100 people of African origin on 7th January 2023 surrounded a police team in the Neb Sarai area of Delhi. The mob clashed with the officers of the Delhi Police, and successfully freed the Nigerian nationals who had been detained over visa expiration by the anti-drugs force.
At about 2:30 PM on 7th January, a team of Narcotics Cell comprising six cops reached Raju Park area and arrested three African Nationals whose visas had expired. When the team was trying to bring them to the police station, suddenly near about 100 African nationals gathered there and obstructed the police team. In this chaos, two of the three detained managed to successfully escape but the police managed to catch the third one, who was also trying to escape and was identified as, 22-year-old Philip, from Lagos, Nigeria. Videos which were shot by bystanders showed the police forming a human barricade along with a thick rope while people from the mob shouted animatedly at them. A few physical altercations between the mob and the police force were also caught on camera.
Later, a joint team from the Neb Sarai Police Station and the Narcotics Squad visited Raju Park again at 6:30 pm in search of the overstaying foreign nationals and detained 4 African nationals, including one woman.
In retaliation, 150 to 200 people of African origin surrounded the police team again, and tried to help the detainees escape. However, the police somehow managed to control the escalating situation, and brought the offenders to the Neb Sarai Police Station, where their deportation proceedings are underway.
