Engineering student Mariam Moustafa, 18, died three weeks after she was attacked by a group of girls in Nottingham.
In the attack in February, the teenager was punched several times during a confrontation with a group of girls.
After getting on a bus near the Victoria Centre shopping complex, it is claimed the group followed her and were threatening and abusive towards her.
Ms Moustafa was taken to hospital where she was put in an induced coma before her death.
Speaking about the alleged attack, Mr Moustafa said: "These people came up to her and said 'Black Rose' and she said 'no my name is Mariam' and they started to hit her."
He said up to 10 people were attacking her but could not be certain as there were "so many".
The student had been involved in another incident with her younger sister in August last year, he said, in which they were also attacked by a group of girls.
Mr Moustafa, 50, said nothing was done due to "no CCTV" being available and because the girls were not known to them.
Nottinghamshire Police has said there is no evidence so far to suggest the teenager's death was the result of a hate crime, although officers are "keeping an open mind".
A 17-year-old girl has been arrested on suspicion of assault occasioning grievous bodily harm and has been bailed pending further investigation.

Unfortunately Nottingham has lost another victim to violence from a group of teenagers. As citizens of the U.K and public of Nottinghamshire we believe justice was not served.
