CCTV captures teenager attacking old Sikh man in Britain

London, Aug 17 (IANS) Closed circuit television (CCTV) in the British city of Coventry has captured shocking footage of a teenaged girl attacking an 80-year-old Sikh man.

London, Aug 17 — Closed circuit television (CCTV) in the British city of Coventry has captured shocking footage of a teenaged girl attacking an 80-year-old Sikh man.

The footage shows the pony-tailed girl, accompanied by three young males, kicking and knocking down the elderly person, who reportedly hails from the Canley neighbourhood of the city.

According to the Coventry Telegraph, the incident took place on Trinity Street in Coventry city centre around 8.30 p.m. Aug 10.

The girl was dressed in black and was wearing a pair of Converse shoes.

The attack took place in full view of passers-by with nobody intervening.

According to the Telegraph report, the girl also spat on the victim and verbally abused him.

Only one person came out to help - and that too after the girl and her companions had left the scene - as he picked up the Sikh man's turban that was also knocked off.

Police in that city in the British West Midlands are treating the incident as malicious wounding, a crime that carries a maximum prison sentence of five years.

Meanwhile, there has been angry reactions to the incident in social media with many people telling the girl to hand herself in to the police.

"The Sikh turban is not just a piece of cloth, but a crown bestowed upon us by our great leader... I hope these cowards are caught and punished fairly," Ajay Singh was cited as writing.

"If that was my daughter I would drag her to the police station let her face up to this disgraceful act," wrote Amadine Ambrico.

According to the report, police till Friday were yet to make any arrest in connection with the incident.
