Police had registered an FIR against the duo following a compliant lodged by a 43-year-old German tourist, who alleged that they tried to rape her last week.

Pushkar police station incharge, Hanumana Ram told


on the phone that efforts were being made to identify the bus which would help in nabbing the culprits.

"The German tourist could not tell the details of the bus as she was terrified," he said.

The SHO said "I have started an investigation into the incident and no stone would be left unturned to trace the bus and the accused in this case."

Alexendra said that she had informed the German embassy and sought its help to take up the issue with the Rajasthan government to arrest the accused.

Giving the details of the incident, she said "I was coming in a bus from Ajmer on May 16 after meeting my acquaintance Dickinson. All the passengers got down when the bus reached Pushkar."

"Finding me alone, the driver and the conductor stopped the bus at an isolated place and tried to rape me but I faced them boldly. I jumped out of the bus and one of the motorcyclists Pintoo gave me lift, which saved my life," the German tourist said.

Alexendra had been arrested in connection with a case in November last year which related to the recovery of the drugs from her.

Police have confiscated her passport and the trial is in progress in the court. It was the third case of attempt to rape a foreign tourist. The DGP's son was accused of raping.
