It was just recently that five Indian-origin school boys were attacked by a group of African teenagers in the Western suburb of Melbourne. And again, a similar kind of situation arose when an Indian International student was attacked brutally. Ranjeet Sidhu, the victim who also works as a security guard, was attacked by a Caucasian man on Monday.
Ranjeet was on his way to work when he stopped at a kebab shop at Hoddle Street in Richmond. It was then that the attacker who was supposedly in his early thirties approached Ranjeet. According to the victim, he has never met the attacker before and the attack was out of nowhere.
The man, as told by Ranjeet, approached him and asked if he was a cop. Ranjeet simply replied that he wasn’t and the man went away. After a minute, the man came back and asked him again if he was a cop. Ranjeet denied for the second time and the man left again. But then, he came back the third time and it was then that Ranjeet grew suspicious. After sensing something wrong, he went back to his car so as to leave. As he was about to leave, the man approached the car and tapped on its window. This made Ranjeet step out of his car and out of nowhere, the man started hitting him with a weapon which was hidden in his bag.
He was hit continuously on his head for six times, out of which he blocked three strikes with his hand and took the other three on his head. The continuous and brutal strikes left Ranjeet with several cuts on his head and lots of blood. The victim was rushed to the hospital. The excessive bleeding left him with ten stitches in head.
There have been no arrests made so far. Ranjeet mentioned that after receiving continuous hits he thought that the attacker was going to kill him then and there. The whole scenario obviously has left him in complete shock. Hopefully, justice will be served soon.
