Tourist: Indian Tour Guide Raped Me

A Japanese woman touring India has come forward as the latest alleged victim of rape in India, a country where sexual assault has become a major problem. A 20-year-old Japanese tourist said her guide in India’s historic city of Jaipur attacked her on Sunday. “The accused offered to drop her at the hotel in the evening but took her to a desolate area... and allegedly raped her,” said police chief Dharam Chand Jain on Monday. “The tourist alleged that she was offered some food, which might have been laced with drugs.” In another part of the country, Haryana, police announced eight men had been arrested for raping and murdering a Nepalese woman who had gone missing Feb. 1. Just last month, six men from the Indian city of Kolkata were charged with kidnapping and gang-raping a 22-year-old Japanese woman.
