Delhi, December 3: An American national has contacted Delhi Police through an email and filed a FIR online alleging that she has been gang raped in a 5-star-Hotel in Cannaught place in March this year.
The woman has said in the mail that she would come to Delhi to record her statement after a FIR was registered.
The victim alleged that she was raped by five men including a tourist guide in a 5-star-hotel.
In her complaint, she alleged that she had arrived in Delhi early in March 2016 on a tourist visa and was staying at the five-star hotel near Connaught Place.
The woman informed that she had hired the tourist guide from an agency as per the suggestions of the hotel authorities. The guide took the lady to the tourist spots all around the city. One day, when she was in her room, the guide asked her to discuss a route plan. He reached at the hotel along with four other friends. They went up to her room and had a few drinks together, after which the guide allegedly forced himself on her. The friends then took turns to rape her.
Traumatised by the incident, the woman left India immediately and returned to the US. In her complaint, the woman alleged that she had not told about the incident to her family members and had gone into depression.
She, later on, went to a lawyer friend, who told her to approach an NGO on India affairs and take up the matter. The members of the NGO advised the woman to register a complaint via an email to the police commissioner. After the Police had received the email, the case was transferred to Connaught Place police station.
Meanwhile, Police is investigating the case.
