Racial attack on four Andhra students in Australia

Press Trust of India

MELBOURNE: Four students from Andhra Pradesh were injured after they were allegedly assaulted in their homes by a couple of teenagers, in the latest attack against Indians studying in Australia.

The culprits were reportedly arrested while the victims, one in a serious condition, were admitted to a hospital, Federation of Indian Students Association (FISA) founder Gautum Gupta said, adding one of the attackers had been charged with attempt to murder.

A Victoria police spokesperson said, ‘‘the incident involved offenders gatecrashing a party and the victims happened to be Indian.’’ According to Gupta, the attack was racially motivated and could have serious repercussions on the $ 3.5 million Australian education industry.

Gupta said all the students belong to Andhra Pradesh. However, their names are yet to be known.

‘‘Earlier, such attacks were more subtle but now we are seeing they are being done more openly,’’ he said.

    When the students of any place come to your country, it’s your minimum responsibility to provide safety and security. Today we hear that the police dishonour the Indian flag and beat the students. Please follow the peaceful methods. Help us to help you. Be kind and have respect for others or you may lose your respect in the world.
