The racist graffiti sprayed on the shop front of Kenwins Newsagents.
A Herne Bay newsagent has spoken of his shock after his business was the target of an obscene racist graffiti attack.
Rushik Parmar, who runs Kenwins in the High Street, says offensive words, including ‘kil u’ and a swastika were sprayed in red paint on the shop shutters during the night.
They were discovered by his mother Shobna when she arrived to open up the shop early in the morning.
Mr Parmar, who is British-born of Asian descent, has run the business with his parents and wife Nina for seven years.
He said: "It was quite shocking and upsetting and I was reluctant to tell my wife about it, at first. Fortunately, it was on our shutters and I could wind them up out of sight.
"But I couldn’t leave them like that, so later in the day I painted over it – but not before we had photographed the evidence."
The attack is believed to have happened last Tuesday night and the family had hoped the offenders would be caught on the shop’s CCTV camera which covers the frontage.
Mr Parmar said: "Unfortunately, the vandals also sprayed over the lens but they must have done it from behind because we have no images of them."
Mrs Parmar added: "It has really upset me. My little girl saw it and asked me what the words meant.
"We came down to Herne Bay from London because we thought it would be a nice place to live and work. We have some lovely customers and never expected anything like this."
Mrs Parmar said the incident had been reported to the police who were investigating it.
She added: "There are other CCTV cameras nearby so we are hoping they picked something up and the offenders will be caught."
