A 30-year-old Ugandan woman was beaten up and stabbed by a Nigerian in Banjara Layout near Hennur after she refused to buy him alcohol, the police said.

The incident, which took place at Horamavu Agara in the early hours of February 10, came to light on Saturday night after the Ugandan woman Shakira lodged a complaint with the Hennur police. 

Shakira, who is into clothes business and is overstaying, had initially cooked up a story that she was injured in a road accident. 

The police are on the lookout for Onsas, the Nigerian, who is also suspected to be overstaying.

In her police complaint, Shakira said that around 11 pm on February 9, she went to “African Kitchen,” a food joint at Banjara Layout, for dinner. An hour later, her friend Gilftein joined her. Both had a drink and were having their dinner. 

Around midnight, after Gilftein had left the place. Onsas came there and asked African Kitchen owner Joy to serve him alcohol. 

Stranger’s demandAfter consuming liquor, Onsas asked Shakira to buy him a drink, which she refused citing that he was a stranger. This led to a heated argument and Onsas began hitting her. 

Shakira, sensing more trouble, went out to take her bike. Onsas came there and started thrashing her. Shakira ran some distance but fell down. Onsas chased and caught Shakira and stabbed her on the forehead with a knife. She managed to run back to the food joint and narrated the incident to Joy.

Joy noticed blood stains on her clothes, offered her a set of clothes and took her to a hospital near Ring Road where she was given first aid. 

Meanwhile, Shakira’s friends Gilftein and Tony came to the hospital. One of them contacted Onsas on his mobile and told him to compromise with Shakira before the matter goes to the police. 

Onsas agreed to bear Shakira’s medical expenses, a senior police officer said.

As the injuries were serious, Shakira was taken to MS Ramaiah hospital by her friends in a cab, where she was admitted under the “history of Road Traffic Accident”.
