Indians Bash up Two Australians following ‘Curry Bashing’

Two Australians, who reportedly abused a group of Indians and smashed up their car, were bashed up them in Melbourne, said police on Monday.

As per media reports, the incident occured outside Meadowglen International Athletics Stadium in Epping after the rear window of a car that belonged to an Indian was vandalized by a local skateboarder.

At the time, some Indians were coming out of the standium where a kabbadi match had ended last night and the vandalized used the abusive language against them.

“Associates of the people, whose car was damaged, came to their assistance. Two men were assaulted and hit with sticks in the brawl. These two injured men were from the group outside who had allegedly started to verbally abuse the people from the vehicle,” police said in a statement.

Police said that the two man, aged 25 and 42, receiving minor injuries in the incident, were hospitalized in Northern Hospital. Nevertheless, nobody has been arrested and the incidence is being probed, they added.

“A lot of people were leaving, the presentations were on at the time, I spoke to one of the boys that was there and he said a guy had smashed the rear window of a car that was leaving,” Councillor from the City of Darebin Tim Singh, who was present at the medal presentations ceremony for Kabaddi tournament, was quoted as saying by the media.

According to Singh, the guy used some racial comments, too, after which the altercation broke out and escalated between the two groups.

However, AAP reported quoting police officer Mark Doney as saying that the incident took place when contestants of the team began to leave the venue.

“One of the youths there tried to get in the way of the cars and yelled out a bit of abuse at people. I think he got his just desserts by the occupants of the vehicle after he smashed the window of their car. Obviously, push has come to shove and he smashed the panel of the side window of the car with the skateboard. It has escalated from there as some of his mates have come down the skatepark. A couple more were assaulted,” he said.

Inspector Doney said the injured men hadn’t pressed charges.

“We don’t have a complaint of assault from them,” he said.
