Crime Patrol: American tourist gang-raped in northern India (Dial 100 Episode 57 on 29th Dec, 2015)

The Inside Story

American Tourist Gang-Raped in Manali, Himachal Pradesh

An American tourist was allegedly gang-raped by a truck driver and two of his accomplices in Manali, a tourist destination in Himachal Pradesh, on Monday night. The accused offered her a lift, and she accepted it. The police inspector, Abhimanyu Kumar, confirmed that medical tests have confirmed the rape, and the police were hunting for the accused men.

The woman could not remember the number plate of the truck and could not understand what the accused were talking about. They drove the truck to an isolated spot and raped her for nearly an hour. Every truck driver in Manali has been ordered to report at the local police station as part of the investigation, said Kumar.

The number of foreign women tourists visiting India had dropped by 35 percent following several sex attacks that have made global headlines, according to a survey by a trade body released earlier this year. The fatal gang-rape of a 23-year-old Indian student by six men on a bus in New Delhi in December 2012 led to sometimes violent protests in cities across the country and brought simmering anger about endemic sex crimes in the country to the surface.
