Melbourne:  The condition of 20-year-old Indian student, who was brutally attacked on December 29, remains critical but was responding to medicine well, according to his brother.

Manrajwinder Singh from Reservoir was standing with his other two friends near the footpath east of Princess Bridge when they were approached by eight men of African appearance and a woman at about 4.15am (local time) on Sunday.

The trio was attacked by the gang who fled away with their mobile phones, according to a police statement.

Singh, a student of accounting course in Cambridge college in Melbourne, remains in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at the Alfred hospital after being operated once for serious head injury.

The victim's brother Yadwinder Singh said his brother was still in induced coma but was responding well to medicines.

"He is not out of danger but he is responding well to the medicines," he said.

Yadwinder praised the hospital staff and the prompt work of Victoria police in nabbing the culprits.

"The hospital is giving the best medical treatment to my brother and I am satisfied with the way Victorian police has responded to this incident," he said.

"However, right now our main concern is the recovery of our brother," Yadwinder said.
