The allegedly drunk Nigerian woman, who was arrested on Monday evening after she created a ruckus near National Market, chased policemen who came to calm her down and bit two passersby, was discharged from National Institute of Mental Health and Neuros Sciences (NIMHANS) on Tuesday evening.
Marian and her friend Yesudas Puthambara, who hailed from Kerala, had caused ugly scenes near National Market. Alerted by passersby, Upparpet police rushed to the spot and tried to calm her down but she chased them away. Finally, a few policewomen had to pin her down and tie her. She was taken to KC General Hospital where she was made to undergo tests and later referred to NIMHANS after she showed no sign of sobriety.
On Tuesday evening, Marian was cold sober and then discharged. Police took her into custody and rushed her to Sanjay Gandhi Hospital in Jayanagar as she complained of pain. Police said Puthambara has been accompanying Marian. They are students of a management college in north Bengaluru and stay together in Sanjaynagar.
Police said a shopkeeper and an autorickshaw driver bitten by the woman were given first-aid. Police added that Maria’s blood samples have been sent for tests.
