Indians allege racism in Australia

Indians cry foul over string of attacks, but Australian police deny racial motives.

     

    The Australian police are being accused of institutional racism following a series of attacks on Indian students.

    An Indian man said he was assaulted by four men who set him on fire in Melbourne on Saturday.

    The incident happened after an Indian student was stabbed to death, but police in Australia's second largest city say neither attack was racially motivated.
