Foreign tourists attacked near Ajmer

Jaipur, April 5 (IANS) Two foreigners, including a woman, were injured when six miscreants attacked them at a tourist spot near Ajmer late Monday evening, Rajasthan Police said on Tuesday.

According to police, two couples — a man from Britain, another from the US and two women, one from Spain and another from Germany, — rented two motorbikes from Pushkar to visit Ajaypal, a popular tourist spot near Ajmer.

“On reaching the spot, some goons attacked two of the four tourists. The clothes of one of the women tourists were torn off as these persons tried to molest her and one of the male tourists was also hit on the head,” police said.

These tourists, all in their mid-30s, later called up one of their friends in Pushkar, who took them to a hospital in Ajmer where their medical examination was conducted.

“The FIR was filed late night. We have launched an investigation into it. We have already detained some persons and questioning is going on. We hope to arrest the miscreants soon,” a police official said.
