Polish woman drugged, raped in India by taxi driver Police hunt for the accused

NEW DELHI, Jan 5, (AFP): A Polish woman was drugged and raped as she travelled to the Indian capital with her two-year-daughter, police said Sunday, the latest in a string of sexual attacks on women in the country.

The woman, 33, and her daughter were travelling in a taxi from the city of Mathura where they live to New Delhi last Thursday when she was allegedly raped by the driver.

The driver drugged the woman at some point during the 150 kms (93-mile) journey and she was attacked after she passed out, Delhi police spokesman Rajan Bhagat told AFP.

The woman woke up on a bench outside a railway station in New Delhi with her toddler crying by her side, the officer said, adding that details of the attack were still unknown. “It is still a bit unclear, but prima facie, it seems she sat (in the taxi) voluntarily.

But yes, thereafter, in the car he drugged her using some spray... medical report has confirmed rape,” he said. The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, reported the incident to police who are searching for the driver, Bhagat said.
