Nicholas Walker, prosecuting, said the victim is Sri Lankan and told them he was not from Pakistan, but this “was lost on the males, who continued with their racist abuse”. He said: “Each of the defendants kicks or stamps on him when he is on the floor. At least one of them seems to be recording it on their phone. “Witness Matthew McClaren recalled how “it seemed that p*** was every other word” used by the gang and they said “stay down you dirty p***”.
Mr Siththampalam later underwent surgery for multiple fractures to his jaw and eyes, with metal plates inserted in his face.
Mr Walker said: “He described himself as a man who always supported himself and his family but the attack made him feel like committing suicide.”
