'Culprits have been arrested in the racist attacks case'

June 30, 2009 19:28 IST

The Australian police have carried out several arrests in connection with attacks and the same has been publicized in the Australian media, a latest email from the consul general of India in Melbourne said.

The mail, which has been sent to Civil Liberties in Hyderabad in response to the action taken against the attackers, says wide publicity to the arrests has been given in the Australian media, but same has not been done in the Indian media.

Arrests have been made in various cases, including the cases of Sravan Kumar, Mir Kazim and Saurabha Sharma.

The Australian government has said some attacks could be racist and the government has pledged in Parliament that there is a need for a tougher legislation and sentencing rules for racist attacks and hate crimes.
