The Swiss tourist, who was on a cycling trip along with her husband, was allegedly gangraped by seven to eight men at a forest area in Datia district on the night of March 15.
The minister said the government would take steps to ensure that such incidents do not recur. "They had their tent in the outer area of the city, but the incident should not have happened. We will think what more can be done for foreign tourists," he said.
Gupta admitted that incidents of rape had increased in the state and added that in 80% to 90% of cases offender comes from family itself. He emphasised upon awareness programmes to stop such crimes.
