Two persons have been detained for questioning in connection with a case of alleged rape of a German woman in Tamil Nadu, police said.
The 24-year-old tourist had alleged that she was sexually assaulted by three “Indian people” on a beach in Mamallapuram, more than 60 km south of Chennai on Sunday.
She was later admitted to a government hospital in Chengalpet, police said.
The German woman had strayed from her group of five tourists, far from the private beach of a resort she was staying in, at Mamallapuram in neighbouring Kancheepuram district. She was sunning herself and fell asleep, only to be rudely woken up by three persons who sexually assaulted her, police said.
Police has formed four special teams to nab the culprits. District police chief visited the spot and investigations were on.
The woman told a private television channel that “the Indian policemen were very professional and helpful”.
