Agra: Three underage boys are among five arrested for assaulting a Swiss tourist couple in Fatehpur Sikri on Sunday

UP Secretary (Home) Bhagwan Swarup said that five people were found to be involved in the incident.

“All five have been arrested/apprehended. Prima facie, two appear be major and the rest three minors,” he said in a statement.

Quentin Jeremy Clerc, 24, suffered a fractured skull and may have partial hearing loss, and his girlfriend Marie Droxz had a broken arm after they were attacked with sticks and stones by a group that had chased them from a railway station in Fatehpur Sikri, the popular tourist destination right next to the Taj Mahal town of Agra.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Thursday sought a report from Uttar Pradesh government on alleged attack.

Clerc and Marie Droxz had arrived in Agra on September 30 from Lausanne in Switzerland.

Foreign ministry officials including Indian Ambassador designate to Switzerland CB George visited the couple in hospital and said they were recovering.
