 UP Secretary (Home) Bhagwan Swarup on Thursday night said five people were found to be involved in the incident.”All five have been arrested/apprehended. Prima facie, two appear be major and the rest three minors,” he said in a statement.Dr Rajendra Prasad, neurosurgeon at the Apollo Hospital in Delhi where the couple was admitted, said Clerc has been shifted to the ward from the ICU. He said Droz has a fracture in her arm but has been discharged after treatment.

“We have moved him(Clerc) out of the ICU into a room. He is having a hearing problem otherwise he is conscious and talking,” said Prasad, adding it is difficult to say at this stage whether he has suffered permanent hearing damage.”He’s improving but we will have to see in the long term,” he said.Prasad said the duo is in a state of shock and that Droz is at present with her male friend.
