Manali - Police in India are searching for three men who gang-raped an American tourist. The 30-year-old woman was hitchhiking when she was attacked.
The gang-rape of an American tourist is the latest in a spate of violent attacks against women in India, with foreigners becoming high-profile victims.
The BBC reported the woman was attacked when she accepted a lift from three men in a truck as she hitchhiked back to her guest house. The assault took place in the resort town of Mananli in Himachal Pradesh.
According to the Times of India Abhimanyu Kumar, the local police inspector, confirmed the attack took place, saying: "The woman cannot remember the number plate of the truck and she could not understand what the accused were talking about. They drove the truck to an isolated spot and raped her for nearly one hour."
The rape took place just one day after a 21-year-old Irish woman working for a charity was drugged and raped in India. The Daily Mail reported police have arrested a 35-year-old businessman for the rape but he denies the charges.
