German national beaten up by railway supervisor in Uttar Pradesh

A German national was allegedly beaten up by a railway supervisor at the Robertsganj railway station in Sonbhadra district of Uttar Pradesh, police said on Sunday.

The incident comes days after a Swiss couple were attacked near the railway station at Agra's Fatehpur Sikri.

Holger Ereek was allegedly beaten up by railway supervisor Aman Kumar on Saturday after which the station master informed the police.

Circle officer Vivekanand Tiwari said Aman Kumar has been arrested.
However, the railway employee alleged that when he greeted Ereek by saying "welcome to India", he hit him.

The victim refused to talk to the media.

"According to reports, the railway supervisor enquired the German national about his well being, which angered him. The German hit the railway employee, who might have pushed him in retaliation. Based on the complaints of the two, non-cognisable reports have been registered. Their medical examination has been conducted," ADG (Law and Order) Anand Kumar told reporters in Lucknow.
