In a shocking incident, a couple from Lausanne, Switzerland was chased and attacked with stones and sticks by a group of youths in Fatehpur Sikri, Agra on Sunday, leaving them battered and bruised, The Times of India reported.
Quentin Jeremy Clerc and his partner Marie Droz, both in their twenties, were strolling around a railway track in Fatehpur Sikri when a group of local youth started following them. The group insisted they click selfies with the female tourist and then started enquiring about their place of stay, The Hindu reported. Soon, the harassment turned into a full-blown assault.
The attack was so brutal it left Cleric with a fractured skull, brain-clot and hearing impairment. Droz too has a broken arm and multiple bruises. The couple was taken to a local health centre before being shifted to Delhi.
