A 31-year-old man from Sikkim was severely attacked by unidentified persons in Bengaluru after receiving discriminatory taunts that he was “Chinese” and suffered severe injuries, police said on Saturday. The incident occurred on the evening of August 15, according to the police.

Dinesh Subba, a resident of the Sikkim town of Rinchenpong, was taken to the hospital after suffering several injuries to his body, including a broken nose.

He was found by a Bengaluru police patrol squad lying in the street, bloodied and in agony. He was given hospital admission. Subba later reported the incident to the police. Police had begun an investigation and sought CCTV footage to identify the attackers. Police were also informed by security personnel at a nearby building. The Electronics City police have received a complaint from Subba. Deepak Dorji, Subba’s brother-in-law and an Arunachal Pradesh native in the city since 2009, stated that the attack was racially motivated.

He mentioned, “Three miscreants attacked my brother-in-law with a blunt weapon. His wedding anniversary was on 14 August, and he threw a party for his brother and friends on the night of 15 August. After the party, everybody went home, and Subba was just 100 metres away from his house when he was attacked. The miscreants, who were riding a two-wheeler, hit Subba with a blunt weapon after calling him Chinese.”

By the time I reached there, the police had arrived. Cops scanned CCTV footage of the supermarket, but the trio wasn’t captured on it.”
