An Indian taxi driver was brutally attacked by two men who punched and slashed him with scissors in a robbery attempt in Victoria province, a media report said on Friday even as Australia pledged to ensure safety of Indian students who faced a string of assaults in Melbourne recently.

The men threatened taxi driver Vadbhag Singh, 24, with scissors inside his taxi in Richmond two weeks ago, demanding cash and a GPS unit from him, police said. Detective Senior Constable Dean Higgins says the attack lasted for about two minutes.
