Krishna advises students to be cautious in Australia

      Reacting to reports that Indian wrestlers had attacked a group of youths after they were racially abused in Australia , External Affairs Minister S.M Krishna has said students should not take the law in their hands. Talking to reporters here on Monday, Krishna said although self-defence was fundamental in nature, students should not take the law in their hands. "I don't recommend that students should take law into their own hands. I think the incidents of attack on Indian students are tapering of. There are here and there some reported incidents," he added. According to reports, Indian spectators leaving a Kabaddi match in Melbourne on Sunday night attacked a group of youths after they were racially abused. Talking about tensions on the India-China border, Krishna said that it was the most tranquil and peaceful border. "The Indo-Chinese border which is large, which is not demarcated as yet is one of the most peaceful and tranquil borders. There are certain incidents but we have evolved a mechanism, whenever incidents of incursions occur then we have a mechanism put in place, so that at the field level itself things are settled and things are sorted out. So I don't think that we should be carried away by such reports," he added. Anger over troop deployments, reports of border incursions, and a high-pitched media debate have reignited strains between China and India over long-festering border disputes in the Himalayas region.
