"Behaviour like this is totally unacceptable and will not be tolerated", said a British Transport Police spokesman, according to The Guardian.

'He said, "Show me your hair!" and tried to pull it off. Ania has never had a racial encounter like this before and has been left so upset by it, ' she said. However, in a recent development the man in question has denied the allegations online and said that he was simply trying to defend his girlfriend. It's stripping her of her dignity to do that, ' she added.

'I was trembling but I managed to take a picture, we didn't want to show them our fear but obviously afterwards we were shaking.

BTP urge anyone with information on the incident to get in touch by texting 61016 or calling 0800 40 50 40. All our families were anxious about us as we missed the last train back because of it'.

Ms Abdulkadir said the man also threatened and verbally abused another woman who was present.

Aniso Abdulkadir reported the suspected hate crime on Twitter on Sunday, triggering an investigation into the matter.

Abdulkadir said when she first revealed the story that when she grabbed hold of her hijab to keep it in place, the man hit her.
