Victoria to provide details of attacks on Indians
Melbourne: Amid a spate of attacks on
Indians here, the Victorian government on Thursday said it will
provide all relevant details to New Delhi on these incidents.
Victorian Premier John Brumby, who was on a week long
trip to India to mend the troubled relationship, offered this
suggestion to New Delhi, according to his spokesperson.
"Premier Brumby made the offer to the Indian
Government to keep them appraised of progress of cases
involving Indian citizens in Victoria. The updates will track
the progress of cases through Victoria`s legal system," the
official told a news agency.
Brumby has been assuring Indian authorities of full
support to curb any violence against Indians apart from
following up the incidents of `racial crime`.
He has stressed that relationship between India and
Australia was strong and the Indian community formed a vital
part of the multicultural society in the state.
The premier also urged the community to have complete
faith in the legal system of the country.
Around 30 Indian students were attacked in various
cities from June to August. Last month, three Indians were
"brutally bashed" by a group of around 70 youth here.
The attacks against Indians described in the media as
race-based caused some diplomatic discomfort between the two
countries and sparked angry protests in India.
Around 93,000 of the 430,000 foreign students in
Australia are Indians.
