She has been rushed into the hospital. We are awaiting further information about the well being of the woman," Krishna told reporters on the sidelines of a function.

Asserting that the country very strongly condemns such incidents, Krishna said it will be fully investigated and culprits will be brought to justice.

"I just spoke to the Israeli Foreign Minister and reassured that the law of the land will take its course. We will continue with the investigations and keep him posted about the progress of the investigation," he said.
