PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
Beijing/New Delhi, Jan 2: An Indian diplomat based in Shanghai was "manhandled" in a court while two others compatriots were tortured and detained, prompting India to lodge a strong protest with the Chinese government.
The 46-year-old S Balachandran was in the court in connection with the hearing of a case related to the detention of two Indians by locals in the eastern business hub of Yiwu for alleged non-payment of dues by their company, whose owner had allegedly fled the country.
The situation turned ugly when Balachandran, Consul of the Indian Consulate in Shanghai, was leaving the court after prolonged negotiations on the night of December 31 with regard to the release of Deepak Raheja and Shyamsunder Agrawal.
The diplomat, a diabetic, fainted after being "manhandled" and had to be rushed to a hospital in Shanghai.
The incident led to strong protest from India.
