‘Indian student attacked in Melbourne, motive unclear’

The most creative [sic] headline of the week title goes to IBN Live, Press Trust Of India.

A 28-year-old student, who remains anonymous, got off from a bus at Keilor Plains train station in NW Melbourne and was attacked by two men, who repeatedly bashed him on the head with a baseball bat.

“Callous and unprovoked” is how Constipated Kevin Squires of Footscray police described the attack:

“They just kept whacking him in the back of the head.”

The victim received 20 stitches to close the gash on his head.

It’s estimated that up to 200 Indian students in Australia have been hurt in racially motivated gang attacks in 2009. Most of these attacks go unreported out of fear.

Aussies Aren’t Smart
