The Consulate General of India in New York has condemned the assault and said they were in touch with the police authorities who are investigating this case.

 As per reports, two suspects hit these two men with a pole and removed their turbans.

One suspect has been taken into custody, while the other was still at large as of Tuesday night, according to the NYPD.

It comes nine days after Nirmal Singh, a 70-year-old Sikh man who had been visiting New York from Punjab, India, was punched in the face while walking in the neighborhood with bloodied turban, face and clothes. He was also on morning walk.

Nirmal Singh has now returned to India to be with his family. NYPD has released a surveillance video of the suspect believed to have attacked Nirmal Singh and  offered a reward of up to $3,500 for information. It is still not clear whether the suspect in Nirmal Singh’s case was involved in the attacks also.
