Canberra, Sep.17 (ANI): Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has warned Indian students living in Australia not to take the law into their own hands.
The local Indian community has been told to take "some form of retaliation" following the assault of four men outside a bar in Melbourne on the weekend, reports The Age.
India has urged Australia to put in place quickly promised measures to protect overseas students.
Rudd said Australia was a law-abiding nation.
"The laws are there for a purpose and that is for all citizens to adhere to them," he said.
When asked what message he had for anyone who took the law into their own hands, Rudd said: "People should not". (ANI)
