One arrested in attack on Swiss couple: Authorities

Lucknow, Oct 26 : One person has been arrested while an FIR has been registered against four culprits over an attack on a Swiss couple in Fatehpur Sikri, police said on Thursday.

Additional Director General of Police (Crime) Chandra Prakash stated the arrest was made from the Agra-Rajasthan border.

However, he refused to reveal the identity of the arrested person. He said the Swiss couple – Quentin Jeremy Clerc and Marie Droxz — were found lying injured on a roadside on October 22 and some locals informed police about the incident.

They were picked up by police and taken to a local private hospital in Agra for the treatment. The couple refused to lodge an FIR and requested the police to allow them to go for further aid to Apollo hospital in New Delhi. Police ceded to their request.

Police on its own lodged a complaint and a probe is underway, he asserted.

“We are trying to nab all the four persons involved in the incident,” the officer added.

Meanwhile, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj also asked for a report from the Uttar Pradesh government over the issue.

The couple had reportedly arrived in India on September 30 and were in Agra for a two-day visit. On Sunday, they planned to go to Fatehpur Sikri when they were attacked.
