A female American tourist has told authorities in India that she was gang raped in the northern region early in the week.
A forty six year old California resident was visiting India one month ago traveling by herself to Dharamsala, a very popular tourist destination as it is the home of the Dalai Lama.
The woman said she was walking through the marketplace when two men grabbed her and knocked her unconscious. When she regained consciousness, she knew that she had been raped.
Police said that when the woman awoke she approached them and registered the case adding that they are investigating her claims.
This attack is the latest in a string of attacks against foreign female tourists.
Early in September, three men were jailed for twenty years after raping a Japanese student who was sightseeing and five men are currently facing trial for the rape of another Japanese tourist earlier this year.
