Bengaluru police have lodged a case against seven African immigrants belonging to two groups for allegedly fighting among themselves and later assaulting locals who tried to pacify them, reports the Bangalore Mirror. They have now been sent to judicial custody.

The group, which had rented a house near Country Club on Bagalur Main Road in Yelahanka reportedly got into an ugly brawl on Sunday morning and started fighting each other with liquor bottles and wooden logs. When locals tried to intervene, they started assaulting them.

BM quoted Subramani, a local who filed the police complaint “They first asked us to stay out of the fight. When we insisted, the group of six stopped fighting, while the rest started assaulting us and so we fled."

According to reports in the BM, the fight escalated again on Sunday night after which Subramani called the local police who reached the spot and tried to intervene. But the Africans also allegedly swore at the Police and tried to assault the locals again.
