A German national, who was involved in an altercation with a railway employee at Robertsganj Railway Station in Sonbhadra district, near Lucknow, has been arrested for allegedly travelling on a forged visa, the police said today.

Holger Erik Misch, a resident of Berlin, had on November 3 entered into an altercation with railway employee Aman Kumar and had also allegedly attacked two policemen with a stick, they said.

"The German national has been arrested. First of all he did not have a tourist visa and secondly he was carrying a forged visa," Superintendent of Police, Sonbhadra, RP Singh told PTI over phone. An FIR has been registered against him under 14A Foreigners Act (for entry in restricted areas without valid documents), 419 IPC (cheating by personation) and IPC 420 (fraud), he said. The railway employee alleged that when he greeted Erik by saying "welcome to India", the German hit him, though Erik alleged he was beaten up by Aman.  -- PTI
