A youth from Indore has now become the latest victim of racial attack in Australia.
The victim, identified as Mohit Mangal, a resident of Old Palasia locality in Indore, was attacked by four Australian youths around 1.30 am (IST) on Saturday night while he was on his way to a shopping mall in Sydney.
Mohit, who works as a mall supervisor, was attacked from behind with a beer bottle on his head and beaten up with a baseball bat on his waist and leg by the four youths, sources said.
Confirming the incident, Mohit’s father Anil Mangal, who runs an automobile business here, said the condition of Mohit was out of danger.
“My son had no enmity with anyone there and the incident, it appears, might be a continuation of ongoing racial attacks on Indian students in Australia’, Anil said.
Mohit had gone to Australia about two years back to pursue his study in BE. This was the fourth incident of racial attack on Indian students in Australia after Union External Affairs Minister SM Krishna’s visit to that country.
