An Indian student was beaten in Poland on Wednesday. However, the matter came to light only after External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj sought a report from the ministry on Friday.
"I have just spoken to the Indian Ambassador in Poland and asked for a report. @IndiaPoland," Swaraj replied to a tweet with information on the attack.
According to reports in Polish media, the Indian student was beaten on Wednesday evening at the Market JeÅ¼yckim in Poznan. The case was reported to police but could not be investigated till Thursday as English speaking staff was not available.
The student, an Erasmus student living in Poznan, was out with a friend when he was attacked by an unknown assailant. "Attacker shouted something, but the victim did not understand," the Polish report said.
