New Delhi : Days after the attack on Swiss couple in Uttar Pradesh's Fatehpur, a German national was allegedly beaten by a railway contractor at the Robertsganj railway station on Saturday. 

Holger Ereek was allegedly thrashed by railway contractor Aman Kuma after which the station master informed the police. Circle officer Vivekanand Tiwari said that the accused has been arrested, PTI reported

However, the railway contractor alleged that when he greeted Ereek by saying “welcome to India”, he hit him. The victim refused to talk to the media.

On October 22, the Swiss couple from Lausanne in Switzerland, Quentin Jeremy Clerc (24) and his girlfriend Marie Droz (24), was chased and attacked with stones and sticks by a group of five youths in Fatehpur Sikri, triggering widespread outrage.
