An American tourist has allegedly been gang-raped by a truck driver and two of his accomplices in the northern Indian state of Himachal Pradesh, police say.

“The 30-year-old was raped by men in a truck on Monday night. They offered her a lift and she accepted it,” police inspector Abhimanyu Kumar said on Tuesday.

The incident took place in Manali, a tourist destination 500 kilometres from the capital Delhi.

Kumar said medical tests had confirmed that the tourist was raped and police were hunting for the accused men.

“The woman cannot remember the number plate of the truck and she could not understand what the accused were talking about. They drove the truck to an isolated spot and raped her for nearly one hour,” he said.

Mr Kumar said every truck driver in Manali had been ordered to report at the local police station as part of the investigation.

On Monday, police in eastern India arrested a local businessman for allegedly drugging and raping an Irish charity worker after her birthday party.
