London: An 80-year-old Sikh man, who was punched in the face and shoved to ground by a teenaged girl in the British city of Coventry in August, has died, police said today.






Joginder Singh from Canley was admitted to hospital following a brutal attack in Trinity Street on August 10.

He was discharged from the hospital and later re-admitted for a diagnosed illness which he was being treated for until his death on Sunday, West Midlands Police said in a statement.

The incident was captured on a mobile phone and sparked outrage online after showing 19-year-old Coral Millerchip kicking out and hitting Singh, knocking him to the ground and causing his turban to fall off.

The shocking clip also seemed to show the girl spit at him as he lay dazed on the ground before walking off with a group of youths as someone went to her victim's aid.
