In yet another attack on Indian students in Australia, a youth from the community was assaulted and robbed in Gold Coast, taking to 17 the number of such incidents within a month.
The attack which occurred last week came to light on Thursday when the victim identified as Sachin sent an e-mail to the Federation of Indian Students in Australia (FISA).
“I am a student of Southern Cross University TweedHeads Gold Coast. I have been attacked and robbed … near Coolangatta police station,” he said in the e-mail.
“They took my money, ATM card, phone, gold chain. And I got five stitches on my face,” he said, adding a case has already been filed, but that he was “not satisfied” with the police action.
