    Swiss tourist gang-raped in India

    Police: Swiss tourist gang-raped in India

    (CNN) -- Police are investigating the gang-rape of a tourist in central India, the latest black eye for the country over violence against women.

    A Swiss couple was camping near a forest in India's Datia district when a group of men beat the husband and raped his wife, the district's deputy superintendent of police, R.S. Prajapati, told CNN. There were between five and seven attackers, he said.

    The couple arrived in Mumbai on February 3 and were on a cycling tour across the country, said D.K. Arya, deputy inspector general of police.

    Will this change?!? When???? It has to stop. I am sure there are many more cases that we don't even hear about.

    Or are the public protests in India and media attention worldwide finally forcing an all too common crime to be properly dealt with by Indian authorities?

    One can only hope for the sake of women everywhere.

    I find it appalling that the men who gang raped this poor woman are escorted here and there with hoods over their faces to hide their identity. Pull those hoods off and let them suffer the shame and humiliation these animals deserve.
    Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy jewelry and lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion, Every Day Is Special.

    Should have known it was the woman's fault...


    .As six men accused of raping a Swiss tourist who was cycling with her husband in central India appeared in court, there is growing outrage after both police and a government official blamed the victim for the brutal attack.

    A spokesperson for the state police sparked anger after seemingly saying the Swiss woman and her husband where partially to blame for the attack, calling them careless for travelling to a remote part of the country.

    “No one stops there,” Madhya Pradesh police Inspector Avnesh Kumar Budholiya said, according to The Independent. “Why did they choose that place? They were in the wrong place at the wrong time. They would have passed a police station on the way to the area they camped. They should have stopped and asked about places to sleep.”

    Those comments were echoed by the state government’s home minister who said tourists were putting themselves at risk.

    “What happened is unfortunate for our nation. When foreign tourists come, they should inform the SP (Superintendent of Police) about their plans,” Uma Shankar Gupta told the television news channel NDTV.

    Probably the same things that cause it in every other country. Including America - look at the Steubenville rape case.

    I have always romanticized India for the long term religion, and beauty in daily life. (Like Thailand.)

    I knew things were bad ages ago. Not today bad. I am very saddened.

    Sanjeef, if you read, keep us aware.

    I had no idea that things were this bad in a lot of places that I think have beauty.

    Democracy is not the greatest, and if any place can perfect it, India can. The strength of all there to include tradition and religion is stronger than any. Find those strong points.

    If it is drugs like U.S. I do not have an answer, but hope that India can find one.

    Peace and love. Keep us informed!

    Sheesh my Swiss Cousin (Male, adult, had military training) was planning to hike through Detroit on foot (thankfully someone on the outskirts of Detroit asked what he was doing and drove him to the other side of town).

    The Swiss live in a *very* safe country. They are very trusting. Sounds like the gang rape victim survived, good thing they didn't use an object after the rape.

    Merc are you serious? You thought India was safe? Iran is safe, India is a cesspool.

    THIS is so sad. My 21 yr old daughter has always wanted to go to India and she talked about it recently. I googled these gang rape reports and burst her bubble. No way that she and her friend can safely travel alone through New Delhi. Sad.

    It's terribly sad. I've always wanted to go to India as well, but these continuous reports are too disturbing. I feel horrible for all of the women who live there, constantly in fear. It's awful.
