Sikh Teen Student Beaten Up in US, Hate Crime?

In the video, it was cleared that a boy was following the victim and suddenly punched him several times where the boy tried to protect his head. The assault video was recorded and shared on Snapchat, and it went viral.\
On Tuesday, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said that she had spoken to an Indian student assaulted in Milan and was told that it was not a racial attack but robbery.
According to reports from Indian express, the 14-year-old- boy’s father said that I am feeling so bad that such an incident happened with my son.
The victim’s father had alleged that his son was targeted because of his Indian and Sikh heritage.
“There were two students who were attacked on two different days”, he said.
The incident is the latest in a series of attacks on Indian community members, which are believed to be apparent hate crimes. I have asked the Indian Embassy in the U.S. send me a report on the incident.
