A 45-year-old Ghana national was arrested by Banaswadi police after he allegedly attacked a constable here in Bengaluru on Friday.

Around six policemen went to arrest him based on information provided by ISD about the accused for doubling money.

He hit a constable Shivakumar with a chair. A case has been registered in the Banaswadi Police Station.

Darmeng had travelled to India on a tourist visa on January 24.

"He does not have a permanent residence and takes shelter by befriending some people. He had come to India on a tourist visa on January 24 and had been shuttling across the city offering people that he would give them US $ 1000 against Rs 30,000. We were keeping a watch on him all these days,” P Harishekaran, a senior police officer told the TOI.

“He took out a chair and hit at one of the constables Shiva Kumar, who was on the verge of catching him. Seeing the assault, other four constables who were present there pinned him down and caught him,” he said.

“We have sought the court to remand him to police custody and the court has granted two days police custody. We have to elicit more information from him about his actual dealings in the city.” He is expected back in court next week.
