Steve Waugh pained to hear about Australian attacks on Indians

Posted By: Staff

New Delhi, June 17 (ANI): Former Australian cricket captain Steve Waugh has said that he was disappointed about the recent chain of attacks on Indian students in Australia.

Waugh, who met Home Minister P. Chidambaram in New Delhi on Tuesday, called the incidents as 'unfortunate'.

"It's very unfortunate and I don't like to see or no Australian likes to see that happening. I am a parent myself, I have got three young kids and the safety of your children is the most important thing to yourself and I can understand why the emotions are running so high. We as Australians are very disappointed about what's happening. We don't expect that to happen in our country and we try to make sure that won't happen again," he said.

There have been a string of attacks in Melbourne during the past few days, which Australian authorities insist have been crime-related.

Indian students believe that the attacks were acts of racism and warned of "curry bashings" in Australia, where foreign students more than 12 billion dollars contribute. (ANI)
