A 20-YEAR-old Indian student in Australia suffered serious injuries after he was brutally attacked with sticks and robbed by thugs here.
Manrajwinder Singh from Reservoir landed in the hospital with serious injuries after a gang attacked him Sunday.
According to the local police statement Monday, Manrajwinder was sitting near the footpath with two other friends, east of Princess Bridge, when they were approached by eight men, perceived to be of African appearance.
The offenders assaulted Singh by kicking him on the head and hitting him with a stick.
The group then punched his friend on the face, the statement said, adding the offenders stole the victims’ mobile phones and fled.
Singh was taken to The Alfred hospital, where he remains in an induced coma. Another man suffered swelling and abrasions to his face. He was treated by paramedics.
The incident has been described as a cowardly attack by the Detective Senior Constable Adam Foley.
Meanwhile, victim’s brother Yanwinder Singh has pleaded for justice.
