A man of Indian origin in Australia has been arrested for alleged attacks on Sikhs, The Times of India reported on Sunday. New South Wales Police, in a statement, said 24-year-old Vishal Jood was arrested on Friday morning, from a house on Dixon Street in Parramatta, a major commercial hub outside Sydney. He has been charged with “three counts of affray, three counts of armed with intent to commit indictable offence, two counts of destroy or damage to property » $5000 and $15,000 for Domestic Violence (DV), and assault occasioning actual bodily harm in company of other(s)”, said NSW police. Vishal was refused bail and he was produced in a Parramatta Court on Saturday. “Since September last year, officers attached to Parramatta Police Area Command have been investigating a number of incidents in Harris Park. About 8.30pm, September 16, 2020, a man walking along Brisbane Street was assaulted by a group of up to five men. The man was allegedly struck several times in the head with a baseball bat and then kicked when on the ground. He was taken to Westmead Hospital for treatment to facial injuries,” said police. About 6.30pm on February 14, 2021, a man driving a black 2015 Range Rover along Marion Street was allegedly attacked by a group of up to five men, holding sticks and other weapons, police added. Mentioning another crime, in which Jood was involved, police said, “On Sunday 28 February 2021, a group of people travelling in a vehicle on Kendall Street was allegedly attacked by up to 10 men. The vehicle sustained serious damage.” Jood’s visa has expired and he could be deported to India, The Tribune reported, citing Australian TV channel Seven News.
