Indians retaliate after racial attack in Oz

The incident took place at a carpark outside Meadowglen International Athletics Stadium in Epping in Melbourne’s north on Sunday night when a local skateboarder damaged the rear window of a car belonging to an Indian who was in a group coming out of a Kabaddi match.

Abusive language

He and his accomplices also used abusive language against some Indians who were leaving the stadium after the match. “Associates of the (Indian) person, whose car was damaged, came to his assistance. Two (Australian) men were assaulted and hit with sticks in the brawl.

These two injured men were from the group outside who had allegedly started to verbally abuse the people from the vehicle,” police said in a statement.

The two Australians — aged 25 and 42 — were taken to Northern Hospital with minor injuries, they said. However, no arrests have been made and the incident was being investigated, police said. Elaborating, police officer Mark Doney said that “one of the youths there tried to get in the way of the cars and yelled out a bit of abuse at people.”

“I think he got his just desserts from the occupants of the vehicle after he smashed the window of their car,” Doney was quoted as saying.
