A 20-year-old Indian student in Australia is fighting for his life after he was brutally attacked and robbed by a gang in Melbourne, reports say.
Manrajwinder Singh has been hospitalized with serious injuries after the attack on Sunday night.
According to local police Mr Singh and two friends were approached by up to eight men of African origin and a woman who robbed and assaulted him repeatedly.
Singh was taken to the city's Alfred Hospital where he remains in an induced coma.
Reports say that Mr Singh was in Melbourne pursuing a degree in Accounting.
His brother Yanwinder told the Age newspaper that Manrakwinder had arrived in Melbourne as a way of studying and working and "travelling".
"He said 'I want to see the city. I'm not a child and I said ok then go.
I just want these culprits to be punished, that's all, they should get caught so that my brother, he should get justice."BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
