Indian student beaten up, robbed in Oz

 An Indian student was beaten up and robbed by a group of teenagers in a moving train, a media report said on Monday.
Sourabh Sharma, 21, who came to Australia a year ago to study hospitality, was brutally bashed when six thugs confronted him in the train.
“They asked me for cigarettes. I said I had none, then they said, ‘Why the f--- did you come here?’ then they were saying ‘Kiss my foot’ and started kicking me and punching me,” he was quoted as saying in the report.
“I was crying out for help but nobody would help me. They punched me in the teeth and kept kicking me. I said take my watch, take my wallet, but there were five or six of them and they kept just beating me,” Sourabh said.
He said the gang, all aged about 16, then jumped off at a western suburb station.
Sharma was left bleeding with fractured cheekbone and shattered teeth. He was taken to a hospital.
The attack follows a growing number of assaults on Indian students in Australia, particularly in the western suburbs of the continent.
