There seems no stopping to the list of violent racist attacks in Australia as yet another Indian student was bashed in Melbourne's eastern suburb.
The 20-year old Sunny Bajaj, according to The Age report on Monday, was verbally abused and then punched by two men as he was about to get into his car in Boronia on Friday night.
"They came up to me and asked me for money, I told them I had none and then they attacked me," Bajaj, a student of Deakin University, was quoted in The Age.
The student, who hails from New Delhi, said they slammed his car door and punched him in head and stomach and then racially abused him.
"They called me a ----ing Indian c--- - why would they do that? I said nothing to them, "Bajaj said adding he suffered a fractured finger, bruising to his back and a blood nose.
Bajaj said his attackers were in their 20s, one was white, while the other appeared to be of African descent.
The case which counts the fourteenth such attack on Indians in Australia in less than a month, is now being investigated by the police.
