Another Indian student attacked in Oz

Amrit Pal Singh, who hails from Haryana, was assaulted when he was walking to the place where he worked on part-time basis.

“One of the guys came to me and took off my mobile phone. When I pleaded with him to return it, he gave me a punch on my face. I also punched him back. Following this, his 3-4 friends came and started beating me,” Singh said, narrating the incident. “I have told the police about the incident.”

Singh said the person who approached him first looked like a drug addict. “One of the attackers took out a knife to hit me but I escaped as it hit my bag,” he said, adding that the police had taken his statement and also clicked the picture of the incident spot.

Singh, a student of Caps Institute of Management, is pursuing a community welfare course there. He later informed that  he was fine and back home. One of the victims, Shravan Kumar, a student from Andhra Pradesh, remained critical after being stabbed with a screwdriver by a group of teenagers in a racial attack that also left his three Indian friends injured here last month.
