An Israeli woman was allegedly gangraped by two persons near Manali. The 25-year-old woman was on her way to Manali and was looking for an auto or taxi to take her to her destination.
The woman said six men in a car without a number plate offered to drop her to Manali, so that she could get a taxi from there. She said that two of the men raped her at a location she could not identify. She was then dropped in Manali.
The medical examination report has been sent to Mandi for expert opinion, police said. A case under section IPC 376 rape has been registered and investigation is underway.
The police are confident of nabbing the culprits as high definition CCTV cameras have been installed in the area.
This is the third rape case reported from Kullu in four years. In June 2013, a 29-year-old American woman was gangraped inside a truck by Nepalese men and, in May 2012, an Australian woman was raped by a man she met on Facebook.
