外文标题：Truckers gang-rape US tourist in Manali
MANALI: A 29-year-old American woman was gang-raped inside a truck by three men in Manali early on Tuesday. She was also robbed of her money, cellphone and travel papers.
The California resident, who is married, was travelling alone in India and had reached Manali on Monday. According to her FIR, she had gone to Vashishth village, famous for its hot water springs, 2 km from Manali, to meet her friends. She spent around three hours with them in a private guesthouse and left for Manali at 1.15am. She saw a truck slowing down on the way and sought a lift. But, instead of dropping her at her hotel, the three men in the truck took the vehicle towards the Manali-Rohtang Pass road and took turns to rape her inside the truck between Bahang and Palchan villages.
The woman said she was repeatedly raped between 1am to 3am by the three accused, who later dumped her at Manali bus stand and sped away at 3.30am.
All rapists are not indian.......but ALL indian "men" are potential rapists ,including the ones commenting on this forum.

Somewhere this lady is also to be blamed. Whats the need to starting at 1.15 am for Manali (& dat too alone)? Doesnt she know that the primetime is reserved for the hoodlums & on top of it, she was asking for a lift..!! Good Heavens, if women start roaming alone in the dead of the night on a highway, even she wont be safe even in the US (& let alone India) !!

This is a sad story. Foreign women need to learn, as Indian women already know, it's not safe for women in this country alone after dark. But honestly, getting a lift from truckers after 1 am isn't even a smart thing to do in California.

Because indian men have very tiny Penises they need to assert their MASCULINITY by forming gangs to PREY on weak women and Children and raping them .

let me get this straight------- A US tourist takes a lift from trucker at 1AM in a remote part of manali. whoever this crazy US lady is -----one question to ask her ----- would she ASK FOR A LIFT FROM A TRUCKER in a remote US road at 1AM. she seems pretty foxy to me. somebody needs to tell her suing Indian govt. or police and to get rupees is not an easy task. and Indian truckers are really poor so no money at that end either.

I am a man and even I wouldn't take a lift from 3 unknown men in a truck at 1.15 in the morning in an unknown city. What was this woman thinking?!!

I feel sorry for victim. I am ashamed of Indians in India. Just look at NRI in US how to live life. . This is one of the reason I will never come back to India.

It is not acceptable that the woman was raped and the perpetrators must be brought to justice. At the same time, however, I would ask that everyone exercise caution when asking for a lift at 1 am in the morning in an area unknown to you. As a woman, you risk being raped, robbed and even murdered, and as a man too, you can be robbed and murdered. As someone who has lived in the US, I really find it difficult to understand how someone, an a lady at that too, would ask for a lift from truckers in the middle of the night. Give me a break, this is not even done in the US, and if it is, it is asking for trouble.

Many readers are always interested in knowing what will I say if this happened to my mother? My answer to them, I will say Mom you should have have taken enough precautions yourself. If you needed to travel at 1.15 at night anywhere in world, you should make make your own travel arrangements rather than depending on truck drivers.

Taking lift in a truck at 1 am is like begging for trouble. She has only herself to blame. Sheer stupidity.

Looks like the poor truck drivers did not pay for the services hence she filed a r@pe case. In the US only prot1tues ask for lifts on highway. If asking for lift especially truckers is very dangerous in USA then why would she even think of in India that too in the night! I guess some businesses are done only after dark.

Is 1.30 a.m. time to roam on the street without any escort? At this time, anybody will be rap*d even in USA or European country. She is a big idiot and fool to understand that India is full of Sadhus. She has brought shame to India.

Well it seems like that the women from West wanting to be ra-ped are now coming to rapistan which seems quite like the case with this woman otherwise with so many daily news of r-apes and the dirty reputation of rapistan no sane woman would dare coming to rapistan
