India summons Aus HC over shocking racist slurs

By The Assam Tribune

New Delhi, Oct 9 (PTI): Outraged over the racist slurs by top Australian Police officers, India today summoned its High Commissioner and sought an explanation on the issue, saying such an attitude was "shocking" and a "matter of serious concern".

High Commissioner Peter Varghese described the incident as "unacceptable" and said one officer has left the police services and another one involved in the incident is facing disciplinary action in the matter.

The Victorian police officers have been caught in a racist e-mail scandal joking about the electrocution of an Indian train passenger and suggesting that it could be "a way to fix the Indian student problem" in Melbourne.

In a strong reaction External Affairs Minister SM Krishna, who is currently in Bangalore, said, "Implication of police officers in such behaviour, specially vis-a vis Indian community in Australia, is shocking and a matter of serious concern.
