The family of Shabana Taj, a mother of two, had accused the administrative machinery in Karnataka of ignoring the family in the course of an uproar over a mob assaulting a Tanzanian student following the accident that killed the 35-year-old woman and injured her husband.
Following the accident on January 31, the Tanzanian student, who had later arrived at the scene of the accident in a car, was viewed as an associate of the Sudanese student who was behind the wheel of the car that mowed down Shabnam Taj. Following the fatal accident, a mob had set the two cars belonging to the African students, including the one involved in the accident, on fire besides assaulting the students.
