New Delhi, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday asserted that the Centre has taken very serious note of the hate crimes against Indians in the US and said the Narendra Modi government will come out with a statement on the issue.

“Want to assure the house, that the government has taken up incidents against Indians in the US very seriously and the government will give a statement on it next week,” Rajnath Singh said in Lok Sabha after the resumption of the Budget session of Parliament.
