Dumka: In a shocking incident, a Spanish woman has alleged that she was gang-raped in the Dumka district on Friday night. News agency ANI reported that the incident took place in the Hansdiha police station area. The Spanish woman was on a bike tour with her husband on her way towards Bhagalpur via Dumka, as per media reports.

In her complaint, the woman said that at around midnight, the couple pitched a tent and slept in a deserted place ahead of Hansdiha market. However, later in the night, a few youths from a nearby area barged inside her tent and raped her in turns, reports cited quoting the complainant.


Dumka Superintendent of Police Pitamber Singh Kherwar on the incident said, "As the victims were speaking in Spanish English which we were not able to understand, we took them to hospital where it was discovered that it is a case of gangrape of the woman... Based on the appearance they described, we have detained some people. With the help of the FSL team and CID, we will get the rest of the accused too... The victim told about 7 men involved in the crime and we have detained 3 of them."


Three individuals were detained and produced before a Judicial Magistrate Court on Sunday. Four more will be arrestd soon, assured Kherwar.

“The remaining four criminals have been identified and we have got their details. Soon, they will be arrested. We are also trying to give compensation to the woman. According to the rules, there is compensation of ₹5 lakh to ₹10 lakh, but we will ensure that she gets the maximum compensation. We also appeal to the court for a speedy trial,” Kherwar said on Sunday evening.
