FED-UP Indian takeaway owner Aklasur Rahman has called for cctv cameras to be installed to catch the yobs who are threatening the future of his business.

Mr Rahman, 32, manager of Gulshan Indian Takeaway, on Stoke Street, Ipswich, has seen his premises repeatedly targeted over the past two months. He has had to replace his front window three times and has seen his back door kicked in on numerous occasions.

In the latest incident his back door was kicked in again, this time in the early hours of Saturday morning.

"It is just annoying really, he said. "The police are trying their best but they are not catching those responsible. It is just incurring us more and more costs.

The Evening Star featured Mr Rahman's plight on Saturday and today he said: "A lot of customers have said they saw us in the paper and say they are very sorry about it. We have no doubt that it is racially motivated but we cannot prove it. We just want something done."

A police spokeswoman said: "We going down all avenues to catch the perpetrators of this damage. The victim is of the opinion that the attacks are racially motivated but until we actually catch the offenders and they are questioned we are unable to say if that is the case."
