A shocking incident of alleged racial abuse has emerged where an Indian man recorded an unidentified woman saying "I hate India" when the man's pregnant wife asked for a seat.

According to a April Glover’s report in Dailymail, Utsav Patel, a filmmaker as per his Twitter bio, had gone to Luna Park with his wife and four-year-old daughter when the incident happened. His 15-week pregnant wife wanted to sit down while Utsav wanted to take his daughter for a ride. 

The couple saw the woman sitting on a bench with her legs up and requested her to give a seat to Utsav's wife when she went on an aggressive tirade about how she hated India. 

She can be heard saying "F**k India" several times and motioning with her hand telling the couple to "go, go, go!"

Two videos of the incident were tweeted by Utsav on April 22. Watch them here:

Utsav tells the woman that she cannot talk like that and enquires about the security. The woman responds by saying, "What’s the security going to do. I can say what I like."

Utsav told Dailymail that the woman’s tirade was witnessed by his wife and daughter both, and they were left “speechless for few hours”. “We hope this doesn’t happen to anyone else,” he added.

He tagged NSW police on Twitter when he posted the videos, who responded telling Utsav to lodge a complaint by calling on a number. 

Utsav's later tweets indicate that he was directed by the police to approach other police stations to file a complaint. It is not clear he did the same.
