The Yeshwantpur police on Saturday arrested two staffers of the prepaid autorickshaw counter at Yeshwantpur railway station following a complaint from Assistant Foreigners Regional Registration Officer (AFRRO) Janardhana Jhalaki.

According to police, Jhalaki, who works at Calicut International Airport in Kerala, arrived by train to attend a function in Kurubarahalli and alighted at Yeshwantpur. He then approached the prepaid counter to hire an auto.

The accused Krishna and Mohan asked Jhalaki to pay `66 before boarding the auto. Jhalaki insisted that he would pay the full amount only after reaching the destination and checking the fare meter.

This led to heated argument between the officer and the staff of prepaid counter. Police said the two accused attacked Jhalaki in the melee.

The officer later lodged a complaint at the Yeshwantpur police station who arrested the duo and have taken CCTV footage from the spot.
