NEW DELHI: A Malaysian woman on a business trip to Jaipur, Rajasthan is alleged to have been raped on Friday by a man she met there.
“We have arrested (the man) on charges of raping a Malaysian woman on Friday. (He) is a resident of Bhilwara,” Indo-Asian News Service reported quoting Deputy Commissioner of Police (Jaipur East), Amandeep Singh as saying.
The suspect is 30 years old.
According to the report, the woman in her complaint said she came to Jaipur three days ago on a business trip and met the man.
Both of them had food in a five-star hotel on Thursday night from where he drove her to an isolated place and allegedly raped her in the car after offering her a drink laced with some drugs.
He then left her in front of the hotel where she was staying, said the report.
The woman managed to reach a police car near the Jawahar Circle area in the city and lodged a complaint. The man was arrested within three hours.
“We have registered a case and are interrogating him,” the report quoted Amandeep as saying.
Protests against sexual violence in India has grown since the 2012 gang rape and murder of a student on a Delhi bus.
Official statistics say about 25,000 rapes are committed every year in India, a nation of 1.3 billion people.
Earlier this year, a 51-year old Danish woman was allegedly gang-raped in Delhi. She was robbed and raped at knife point.
During the same timeframe, an 18-year-old German was also reportedly raped by a man sharing her compartment on a train travelling from Mangalore to Chennai in southern India.
