The party accused the Congress government in Karnataka of covering up the incident and said its inaction has brought disrepute to Bangalore city. It also demanded immediate action, including transfer of DGP and suspension of police officers concerned.

"Such a big incident has happened and so much time has passed, still Rahul and Congress are silent for something that has happened under the very nose of their government there. No action has been taken. This shows how much hypocrisy is there in them and how they play hypocritical politics", Union Minister and senior BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said.

"It is shameful that those who are experts in creating a mountain out of a molehill have suddenly turned silent and their silence seems to justify such an unfortunate incident", Naqvi said.

A Tanzanian woman student was allegedly beaten up and stripped by a mob in a case of mistaken identity after a woman was mowed down by a car in the city.
