An Indian hailing from Punjab was found dead on a roadside in Sydney on Sunday, even as the police are investigating the cause of his death.

The police has sent the body of Dharmendar Singh for post-mortem. He is believed to be between 30-35 years.

"The cause of the death will only be known after autopsy is done. Police is investigating the cause behind the death," a police official told PTI.

Over 100 cases of attacks on Indians have been reported since the last year in Australia, mostly in Victoria.

Twenty-one-year-old Indian Nitin Garg was stabbed to death in Australia on January 3, in the first case of casualty in a series of vicious attacks on the community members.

Garg, who migrated from Punjab and had permanent residency in Australia, was stabbed in the abdomen in a park while on his way to work.
