Joy has told Australian radio channels that he worked as a part-time driver, and was passing by a McDonalds take-away when five people there hurled abuses at him, suggesting that "you bloody black Indians" should leave the country.

Joy, who has been a resident of Hobart for the past eight years, had gone to the outlet for a cup of coffee after returning from a trip.

The 33-year-old victim said that the teenagers had been arguing with the McDonald's staff when he reached the fast food centre, but turned their anger on him when they noticed him.

An Indian man was allegedly assaulted by a group of teenagers who hurled racial abuses at him at a restaurant in Tasmania on Sunday.

"We understand he suffered minor injuries and has been discharged from Royal Hobart Hospital", the statement said. The incident happened at 4 am Saturday at the McDonalds Restaurant. They were angry at the McDonald's staff but turned their anger on me in the auto park and then inside the store, " Li told themercury.com.au. However, after entering the outlet, he saw that five youths, including one woman, was having an argument at the counter. The others joined him and I lost count of the punches I received.

"They were angry at the McDonald's staff but turned their anger on me in the auto park and then inside the store", Joy said of his alleged attackers.

The racial mood is definitely changing. It is continuous now. "Many attribute this to "Trump effect" but I don't know what exactly provoked them", he said adding recently another Indian driver was humiliated in a similar fashion but he refused to file a police compliant. He also claimed that there was no serious efforts from the authorities in Australia to take action against the accused group. He waited in the police station for hours and there was not much response from them.

He had to call up the control room and report his agony.

Mr Joy also sent a detailed email to External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj about the incident.
