A HUDDERSFIELD cab driver claims he is being targeted by racists after the sixth attack on his work vehicle in the last two years.

Father-of-one Tokir Sura (39) spoke out over concerns for his family and his taxi business after a substance, believed to be paint stripper, was thrown over his car.

Hooligans have previously slashed the cabbie’s tyres on four separate occasions and the latest incident follows a similar attack with paint stripper just 12 months ago.

Mr Sura said:

I am scared for my family and my child. I have lived here for a number of years but now I just want to move away. I do think it’s racism as I am the only Asian around here. I don’t want any trouble, I just want to live in peace and quiet.

A spokesman for West Yorkshire Police said: “The substance thrown is believed to be paint stripper. House to house and CCTV enquiries have been carried out in the area and forensic enquiries were also conducted at the scene of the incident. Witnesses or anyone with information should contact the police on 101, quoting crime reference number 13170437328 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.”
