In the latest incident, the woman had arrived in Agra on March 17 and rented a room in the hotel Agra Mahal.
According to her complaint to the police, around 3.30 am, hotel owner Sachin Chauhan began knocking at her door.
“He had been pressurising her to avail the massage facility, which he said was a free gift. The woman had repeatedly refused, but the man continued to harass her,” said Virendra Singh, station house officer (SHO) of Tourism Police Station.
“Around 5 am, when the irritated woman finally opened the door, he stepped in and repeated his offer, but she managed to push him out and lock the door. Then she jumped from her second-floor balcony — landing onto the first floor and then onto the road — and hiring an auto-rickshaw, came straight to the police station,” the SHO said.
The police have arrested Chauhan and charged him with attempt to rape. The hotel has been sealed and its licence cancelled.
