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