In a possible hate crime, an Indian woman IT consultant working with tech firm MindTree was stabbed to death at Sydney in Australia today.
Identified as Prabha Arun, the victim was attacked at Amos Street in the western part of Sydney. Police found Prabha “seriously wounded” and took her to the Westmead Hospital where she later died, The Sydney Morning Herald reported.
The attack happened near a cluster of trees with wide open spaces on either side and was 20 metres from the nearest light, media reports said.
The external affairs ministry spokesperson in New Delhi tweeted that the Consulate General of India in Sydney was aware of the incident. “All necessary assistance is being provided,” the spokesperson said.
Police are scanning the CCTV footage of her walking from the station along Argyle Street and on to Park Parade to see if there was anyone following her into Parramatta Park.
