Indian Man U fan attacked by racists as 200 passengers looked on

An Indian-born Man United fan was badly beaten up on a tram in Manchester in an alleged racist attack, as more than 200 passengers looked on and did nothing, the Daily Mirror reports.

Prakash Patel was travelling home after a match on a Metrolink tram with his daughter Devyani, 21, when he was attacked by seven men who rained punches on the 56-year-old bank officer.

The tram carriage was so full of people that Mr Patel was forced to stand up-right after he had been knocked out.  

Mr Patel, from New Moston, told the Mirror: “These men came on and started making indecent racist comments.

“Myself and my daughter felt distressed about it so I said ‘please behave’ and that’s when it started.

“They were hitting me in the face, the eyes, the head. After two punches I think I blacked out but the carriage was so full that I was unconscious while ¬standing up.

The attack, which took place on January 26 after the match between Man Utd and Fulham, left Mr Patel with a swollen face, black eyes and a concussion.

“There must have been more than 200 people just in our carriage but nobody did anything or said anything. They all just stood and watched us.

“I managed to lean against the side of the tram while they got out. They told me, ‘If you want to finish this get off the tram’.

“Nobody did anything to stop them or help me afterwards. My daughter Devyani was the only one who helped me.”

Estate agent Devyani said: “I was screaming at them to stop but nobody did ¬anything or said anything.
Mr Patel, who has followed Man U for 25 years, told the newspaper the attack has put him off using public transport and sitting in the stands at Old Trafford.  

"I'm a big United fan and we have never had any trouble but I will only ever watch Manchester United in a box."
