Sikh student assaulted in Oz

Melbourne, June 30
In yet another racial attack on Indian students in Australia, a 22-year-old Sikh youth was assaulted by a group of six teenagers, who tried to remove his turban and cut the hair.

Resham Singh, a student of hospitality course who came from Punjab six months ago, became the 20th victim within a month when he was attacked yesterday at Dandenong Station here.

Singh, who could not speak English properly, explained in Punjabi that “They first abused me and left and then again came back with more people and also got a pair of scissors along with them. They tried to remove my turban and cut my hair”. “My friends tried to save me,” he said, adding “education agent back in India never gave me any information of how hard life will be here”.

The police confirmed the arrest of the two attackers. — PTI
