New Delhi: India has called its High Commissioner to Australia Sujata Singh for consultations in the backdrop of continuing attacks on Indians there.

The High Commissioner will be here on February 10 and will brief External Affairs Minister S M Krishna and Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao on the situation, sources said here on Wednesday.

She is expected to give her assessment about what steps the Australian government has taken to prevent the attacks and punish the guilty.

Krishna had met his Australian counterpart Stephen Smith in London last week twice on the sidelines on a multilateral conference on Afghanistan.

Smith has assured Krishna that a high-level working group would be set up by the federal government and the government of Victoria state to study the spate of attacks on Indians in that country.

Over 100 Indians, mostly students have been attacked in Australia since last year, and one of the attacks has been fatal.
