Swiss tourist raped by four men in India


NEW DELHI — A Swiss woman on a cycling tour with her husband was raped by four men Friday night in Madhya Pradesh, a central Indian state famed for its ancient temples and palaces, the police said Saturday. The woman, 39, and her husband, were camping in a forest about 400 yards from a road near the town of Datia when they were attacked and beaten by seven or eight men, said Dalip Arya, deputy inspector general for the Chambal area of Madhya Pradesh state. The couple were making their way from Orchha to Agra, the home of the Taj Mahal, the police said. (New York Times)
