Hyderabad, May 28: Shravan Kumar, a 25-year-old student who was allegedly attacked by teenagers in Australia is battling for life after he and three of his friends from Andhra Pradesh were attacked on Tuesday, May 26. Doctors are not 'very optimistic' about chances of his recovery.
Shravan was critically injured after one of the boys attacked him with a screwdriver. The other three identified as A Krian, Subhash and Sandip escaped with minor injuries. The attackers abused the Indian students and asked them to leave Australia. While Shravan is still in hospital, the other three moved out of the house.
This is the second attack on Indian students in a week. Meanwhile there are reports that the house where Shravan and his friends were staying is apparently robbed by some miscreants.
Federation of Indian Students Association at Melbourne has appealed to all Indian students to be careful and not do anything that could attract the wrath of locals.
