Datia, Madhya Pradesh: A 39-year-old Swiss national was gang-raped by a group of men in Madhya Pradesh last night. The men assaulted the woman after thrashing her husband with lathis (wooden sticks)and robbing the couple of their valuables.
The incident happened at a village near Datia where the woman and her husband were camping. They had halted there while on their way from Orchha to Agra. They had planned to cover the 250-km stretch on bicycles.
According to the woman's husband, around 9:30 at night, a group of seven men with lathis in their hands overpowered him, and then four of them gang-raped his wife. The men also beat him up, he said.
