Continued attacks on Indians in Australia do not "augur well" for bilateral ties, External Affairs Minister S M Krishna said in New Delhi on Wednesday.
The minister was reacting to the latest attack on an Indian in Melbourne which was the fifth such assault on Indian cabbies within a week.
Krishna said he was expecting a report from the Indian High Commissioner to Australia on the incident.
"I have just heard the news. I am expecting a report from our High Commissioner and after getting the report perhaps I must have something to say.
"But it is very unfortunate that they keep repeating, which does not augur well for our bilateral relationship," the minister said.
Krishna has already indicated a possibility of Government advising Indian students not to go to Australia if the attacks on them, which has claimed one life so far, continued.
