Australian police on Thursday clarified that a student who underwent an emergency surgery after being stabbed in the stomach last month was not an Indian as reported by the media, but a Nepali.
According to Victoria police senior constable Emma Franckom, the student who was stabbed in the stomach by two men after he finished work in a bar in South Yarra, a Melbourne suburb, early November was from Nepal.
Earlier, the AAP report had said that the student who did not want to be named underwent an emergency surgery and had 26-stitches on his punctured bowel after the attack on November five, was from India.
Victoria police has appealed for witnesses to the attack to come forward.
The student said the two men approached him around 11.10 pm as he walked to a railway station. They asked him for money, and when he said he had none, he was punched and assaulted.
"One punched me in the stomach, scolded me and said dirty words. I collected some courage and ran away," he was quoted as saying.
It wasn't until he reached South Yarra rail station that he realised he was bleeding and that he had been stabbed. He hailed a taxi, which took him to The Alfred hospital where he was operated on immediately.
The victim, who has been in Australia for two years, spent the next 10 days in hospital.
