Four ar­rests af­ter U.S. tourist says she was drugged, raped

The Washington Times Daily - - WORLD -

NEW DELHI | In­dian po­lice said Mon­day that they ar­rested four men on sus­pi­cion of rap­ing an Amer­i­can tourist who came to New Delhi alone ear­lier this year, mark­ing an­other in­ci­dent of sex­ual vi­o­lence to stir out­rage.

The woman said in her po­lice com­plaint that the four men — a tour guide and his as­so­ciate, a car driver and a ho­tel worker — raped her af­ter she was drugged in a New Delhi ho­tel room in April. The woman went back to the U.S. and reg­is­tered a com­plaint through an email to New Delhi’s po­lice com­mis­sioner. She re­turned ear­lier this month to pur­sue the case be­cause she was dis­sat­is­fied with the progress of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

The sus­pects de­nied the al­le­ga­tions and told in­ves­ti­ga­tors the woman had gone with them to Agra to see the Taj Ma­hal, the mon­u­ment of love, a day af­ter ac­cus­ing them of the crime.
