A 21-year old student of Pakistani origin was attacked by a group of people at the University of Newcastle, Australia.

The assault victim, Abdullah Qaiser studies at the University of Newcastle’s Callaghan campus. He recalls the details of his attack as he recovers from a severe knuckle punch attack which disfigured his nose.

Qaiser recounted driving his car on Ring Road Callaghan, when he was ambushed by a group of six people. He told SBS Urdu that a man opened the car door and punched him in the face while others snatched his mobile phone. Another man in the group hollered at him: “Go back to your f***ing country. You don’t belong here”.

Qaiser received severe injuries and needed the help of a friend to describe the attack.

“It was so sudden. I was not expecting something like this; I just tried to stop them,” Qaiser said.

Once the group left, he dragged himself to the campus gym from where an ambulance was called. At the hospital, the police recorded his statement. Qaiser will be receiving further treatment in the coming days.

Possession of knuckle dusters is a serious offence in Australia and anyone found carrying them can be charged an on-the-spot fine or even sued.
