Police say two suspects in the gang rape of a 51-year-old Danish tourist in the Indian capital are unemployed young men who allegedly attacked the woman for nearly three hours.
Police say the tourist was raped at knifepoint Tuesday near Connaught Place, a popular shopping area in the heart of New Delhi. The woman got lost and approached a group of men for directions back to her hotel. But instead of helping her, police say, the men lured her to a secluded spot and raped her repeatedly.
The attack is the latest crime to focus attention on sexual violence in India.
