GURGAON: Home Minister Rajnath Singh Thursday said any discrimination on the basis of caste, creed or religion will not be allowed.

His comment came as two youths from Nagaland were beaten up and assaulted by a gang of seven in the Sikanderpur area of Gurgaon.

In a similar case in Bangalore, a 26-year-old engineering student from Manipur was beaten up Wednesday night by a group of men who reportedly abused and then attacked him for not speaking in Kannada.

"I will talk to all chief ministers regarding this... any discrimination on the basis of religion, caste, creed will not be allowed," the home minister told reporters on the sidelines of the 30th Raising Day ceremony of the National Security Guards (NSG).
