In yet another incident against foreign nationals, a group of 11 tourists were allegedly thrashed by locals boys in Ahraura area of Mirzapur, Uttar Pradesh on Sunday, December 10.

All the tourists who were beaten, including the women, were natives of France. They have been shifted to Mirzapur hospital for further treatment.

“We were going back suddenly some people came and started insulting us. These people start attacking us with sticks. One of my friends is badly injured,” one of the injured tourists said, reported ANI.

Riya Dutt, an Indian friend of the tourists, said that local boys abused, molested and thrashed all the tourists. When she tried to stop the attackers, they thrashed her too. “The attackers called more people to attack us. In defence, we also started attacking them,” she added.


Contradictory reports

The New Indian Express reports that eight people have been arrested for allegedly beating and molesting a woman from Varanasi and leaving a French national injured when he tried to intervene.

The state police have maintained that no attack was made on the foreigner. The daily wrote that the woman along with a group of French tourists and her relatives was visiting the Lakhania Dari Waterfall when the incident took place.

The French national sustained injuries on his hand, police spokesperson said. He added that the vehicle by which the woman had come carried about half a dozen French tourists. She said in her complaint that a dozen men molested and beat her and her relatives.

Earlier in November, a German national was beaten by a railway conductor at the Robertsganj station in Uttar Pradesh.

In October, a couple from Switzerland was chased, pelted with stones and beaten with sticks by a group of young men in Fatehpur Sikri.

The Logical Indian community is perturbed by the number of incidents against foreign tourists in Uttar Pradesh. They come to visit India to see its beauty, not get harassed, molested and beaten on the roads. The Sanskrit saying ‘Atithi Devo Bhava’ will have significance only when visitors feel safe in the country. We hope that all the perpetrators are brought to justice.
