The woman had said was on her way to college when her cab was stopped by men who thrashed her and ran away. She also went to the hospital later.
But at a news conference today, Noida Senior Superintendent of Police Dharmendra Yadav said the Kenyan woman was not assaulted and the report lodged was false. Police officials produced Pintu, driver of the cab in which the woman was travelling in, to corroborate their claims.
The cab driver said that he had dropped the woman at sector Omicron in Greater Noida and had witnessed no such attack.
Police also said that there were no injury marks to support the woman's version either.
A police van stood just a few meters from the location of the alleged assault, yet no one saw any attack taking place, Mr Yadav said.
The woman had called a police chowki in-charge whose number she had taken earlier in the morning and complained about the assault, the police officer said.
An official of the Kenyan Embassy too said the woman was "under tension due to family problems" and had fabricated the account.
African Students Welfare Association president Charles said, "The Kenyan national had given a false statement. It has been proved. The police has been providing security to us".
The incident came after the brutal attacks on Nigerians at the Ansal Plaza mall in Greater Noida and at Pari Chowk nearby that drew widespread condemnation.
