PRAVEET Singh is disappointed that her alleged attacker has been released on bail.

The former Fiji resident and Gospel High School student was savagely beaten last Thursday in broad daylight, while walking along her own street on Wyllie Rd in Papatoetoe in New Zealand.

However a New Zealand Court decided on Tuesday to release her attacker on bail. She told the New Zealand Herald that the judge's decision to put her alleged attacker back on the street was disappointing.

"I want to know why he got bail. I'm not scared to ask. I will definitely go to court next month. I want to talk to the judge," she said adding she wanted to express her concerns about the main being at large in the community.

Ms Singh, 40, was left with fractured eye sockets, a broken nose and bruises following the attack.

She reportedly tried to seek help from one of her neighbours but the man continued to wash his car while she was being assaulted.
