A tourist allegedly from United States was raped by three men in a hill resort in northern India, police said on Tuesday.
According to reports, the american tourist was picked up three men in a truck on Monday while she was on her way to her guest house in the town of Manali. The woman said that the suspects brought her into an isolated location where she was gang-raped.
"We are in contact with authorities but due to issues of privacy we have no further comment," Peter Vrooman, spokesman for the U.S. embassy in New Delhi, said in an email.
In March, a Swiss tourist was gang-raped while on a camping trip in a forest in the central state of Madhya Pradesh. In the same month, a British woman jumped out of her hotel balcony in Uttar Pradesh state to escape a possible sexual assault.
Sex crimes are common in India. The National Crime Records Bureau says more than 24,200 rapes were reported in India in 2011 -- one every 20 minutes.
