Investigations into woman's allegations still in progress

JAIPUR: The Ajmer police on Thursday interrogated four persons in connection with the alleged rape of a Japanese tourist.

Police sources said no arrests had been made and investigation into the Japanese woman's allegations was still in progress. The woman accused a guest house manager of raping her and robbing her of Rs. 54,000 during her visit to Pushkar earlier this month.

A special team, headed by the officer in charge of the Pushkar police station, Sugan Singh, went to Agra to locate the Japanese tourist and verify the charges levelled by her in a fax sent to the Ajmer Superintendent of Police on April 18. When the woman reiterated her charge, the police brought her to Pushkar late on Wednesday night for investigation.

The woman accused the 22-year-old manager of a guest house in Pushkar of raping her on April 2 after she lost consciousness under the influence of `bhang'. She alleged that he had duped her into giving him Rs. 54,000 by suggesting that Pushkar was not safe for foreign tourists.
