Australian NRI faces charges of attacking compatriot
A non-resident Indian restaurant manager has been charged with inflicting grievous injuries to his compatriot, leaving him clinically dead.
The Central Local Court on Monday ordered 23-year-old Rasandeep Singh Gujral to surrender his passport and report daily at Five Dock police station until his case came up at Downing Centre on January 17, setting bail at $200,000 for causing bodily harm to Sanjeev Kumar.
Kumar, 25, an Australian resident, lay at a local hospital with serious head injuries as a result of a scuffle between him and Gujral, the Sidney Morning Herald reported.
However, Gujral's lawyer argued that his client had acted in self-defence, trying to break-up a fight already in progress outside his restaurant.
