Ajmer (Rajasthan), April. 6 (ANI): Six people have arrested for thrashing and manhandling a Spanish couple in a tourist spot near Ajmer in Rajasthan yesterday.
All the six accused, including a minor, were rounded up by the police in 24 hours and also recovered all the items they looted from the couple.
Most of the accused in this case already have a record of criminal activities in the past and have been involved in serious crimes.
Ajmer Superintendent of Police Nitin Deep told the media here that a case has been filed under sections 75/16 , 147 , 148 , 341 , 323 , 307 , 354 and 395 / 149.
Earlier, the couple had rented a bike and were on their way to Ajaypal, situated on the back side of the Taragarh hills, when the incident took place.
The attackers tore the woman’s clothes and attempted to rape her while the male tourist’s head was injured after he was attacked with a stone.
“They came here from Pushkar. At around 5 pm, they were attacked by some men, who were consuming liquor. One of the drunk men even tried to hold hands of one of the tourists… One person got injured,” Nitin Deep told reporters here.
The miscreants later fled the spot when the woman reportedly called up the owner of the hotel they were staying in. The owner arrived at the spot a little while later and took the couple to a hospital in Ajmer. (ANI)
