External affairs minister Sushma Swaraj has taken up with Himachal Pradesh chief minister Virbhadra Singh the case of the alleged rape of an Israeli woman in Manali.

“I spoke to Chief Minister HP and got the details. Two of six accused have been arrested and vehicle recovered.

“We will follow this up with State Government,” Swaraj tweeted.

Two men were arrested by Himachal police on Monday in connection with the alleged rape of a 25-year-old Israeli woman.

After a massive hunt, police recovered the vehicle suspected to be used in the crime.
