Indian court finds five men guilty of gang-raping Danish tourist in
Indian police investigate gang-rape of American tourist
An American tourist has told police she was gang-raped in northern India earlier this week, officials in the town of Dharamsala have said.
The 46-year-old Californian woman arrived in India about a month ago and had travelled alone to Dharamsala, the home of the Dalai Lama and a popular tourist destination 300 miles north of the capital, Delhi.
She had described walking through the town’s main market when two men grabbed hold of her. She then passed out but on regaining consciousness said she became aware that she had been raped by the pair. The alleged attack is the latest in a series that have targeted foreign women travelling in India, which is suffering a wave of sexual violence.
