In the second racially motivated attack to take place on the ISAP electrical railway in Athens in as many days, a 32-year-old Pakistani man was ambushed by a group of around a dozen men on Tuesday night.
The group, according to eyewitnesses and ISAP staff, boarded the train at central Attiki station and were apparently eyeing foreign passengers aggressively, with some sources suggesting that they were also shouting anti-immigrant slogans. The group assaulted the Pakistani man before it pulled into Aghios Nikolaos station, beating him brutally, and dumping him onto the station’s platform, before continuing on their journey and getting off at Aghios Eleftherios.
The man was being treated for extensive injuries at the KAT trauma hospital.
A Bangladeshi man was also undergoing treatment after being stabbed by a mugger at Omonia station on Monday.
Police did not confirm whether either of the attacks were racially motivated.
