Sadly another rape case has been reported in Delhi. This time it was a female passenger going back home from a party on a Friday night. In this particular case, the rape was committed by Shiv Kumar Yadav, a 32 year taxi old driver. I have been reading news about this story and it seems that this man was a sexual predator and terrorised local women. By the time he was 21 years old, he was already molesting women and had several cases registered against him for assaults, rape and carrying firearms.
Crimes against women in India (large scale female infanticide/gender-bias/rape/dowry deaths/domestic violence) are very common but crimes against female tourists to India should not be overlooked by the tourism industry of India.
A Swiss woman has been gang-raped by a group of men in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. It is thought the woman was camping in a forest with her husband on cycling trip when about 8 men attacked the couple on the 15th of March 2013, robbed the pair and raped the woman in front of her husband. The woman (aged 40) was later admitted to a hospital in Gwalior city.
