BENGALURU: A 30-year-old Ugandan woman was allegedly stabbed by a Nigerian national on Wednesday. The incident came to light on Sunday after she approached the Hennur police.

In connection to the stabbing of a 30 year old Ugandan woman, police have arrested a Nigerian national who was at large for atleast one week.

The arrested person has been identified as Onsar, a Nigerian national who is residing in India for 5 years. According to police Onsar’s Visa had expired three years ago. However, he had stayed in India. Onsar was nabbed from a friend’s home in Hosakote.

On the other end, the Hennur police have also wrote to the Uganda embassy as well as to FRRO to gather details about complainant Shakira too as she claimed that her visa passport are missing.

On 10 February Shakira, a resident of Kukkenahalli, Banjara Layout, was with her friend Gifletin at African Kitchen on Wednesday. They were having drinks around 10 pm when Onsar, a Nigerian national, walked into the restaurant.

He asked Shakira to buy him some drinks. When she refused, he allegedly slapped her. Later, Joy, an employee of the bar and restaurant, intervened. He took Shakira inside a room and allegedly locked her up.

Shakira called her boyfriend Tony and told him about the incident. After a while, she went to her vehicle, parked outside the restaurant. Onsar once again came up to her, pushed her and allegedly slashed her with a knife, according to the complaint.

Shakira sustained injuries and started bleeding. By then, Tony, with the help of Gifletin, moved her to a hospital in Kammanahalli and later to M S Ramaiah Hospital.

The complaint was registered only when Onsar, who had promised to take care of her medical expenses, refused later.
