American Caught In The Crossfire During India's War On Women

Indian police say that a 30-year-old American woman has been gang-raped in the northern state of Himachal Pradesh.

Police said that the woman had been attacked after she accepted a lift by three men in a truck in Manali, a resort town in the state.  No arrests have been made but police have set up roadblocks and are searching for the suspects.

"Because it happened at night, she couldn't read the truck number. At around 7am, we put up checkpoints everywhere and we've been looking for the suspects," senior local police official Vinod Dhawan told reporters.  "We have found some clues at the crime scene.  A case of rape was filed after the woman had been medically examined in a local hospital.
