86% of north east people, living in Delhi and NCR, face racial discrimination, a report prepared by north east support centre & helpline (NESC&H) has revealed.
The NESC&H report, which recorded racial discrimination on NE people from mid 2005 till date, said year 2009 recorded highest crime against north east communities in Delhi and NCR.
“The highest crime record was 55.70% in 2009, which included two gruesome killings, rape and murder of a 7-year-old Naga girl, rape and murder of a 19-year-old Naga girl,” the report stated.
Out of just 38.60% cases filed in various police stations, the report said nobody knew whether police took action against the perpetrators.
“If the Delhi police is honest and concern in handling the issues face by north east communities, they should give white paper on all the cases registered in police stations and cases taken up in courts and given verdicts,” it stated.
The study was conducted by selecting samples of north easterners living in North Delhi, South Delhi and Gurgaon.
“Only 14% says that they did not face racial discrimination but they face people calling them chinkies, Nepalis, free culture and strangers, which they did not consider racial discrimination,” the report said.
The other 86% who said that they faced racial discrimination in various forms like molestation, physical assault, misbehave, teasing, calling chinkies and passing vulgar remarks, have lived in Delhi or NCR.
The study has underscored that longer they stay in Delhi they were likely to say that they face racial discrimination.
