In the wake of killing of a youth hailing from Uttar Pradesh in Mumbai, Chief Minister Mayawati on Wednesday asked the Centre and Maharashtra government to take immediate action to stop attacks on north Indians, saying they have "failed" to prevent such incidents.

"The Centre and Maharashtra government should initiate immediate measures to check attack on north Indians in Maharashtra," Mayawati said in a letter shot off to the union government and Maharashtra chief minister.

Terming the attacks as "unfortunate", the chief minister said that both Centre and Maharashtra government have failed to check such "unconstitutional acts".

Mayawati also announced an ex-gratia of Rs two lakhs for the family of the victim, Dharam Dev, who hailed from Sant Kabir Nagar district of the state.

She also directed the district administration to provide all possible help to the family.
