    NEW DELHI: A female British tourist was admitted to hospital after jumping through a hotel window on Tuesday over fears of a sex attack in Agra, home to the Taj Mahal, police said.

    The victim, who was not named but was in her early 30s, suffered leg injuries when she leapt from the first floor after two men tried to enter her room in the Hotel Agra Mahal at around 4:00am.

    "She got frightened so she ran to the other end of the room and jumped out of the window," Pawan Kumar, superintendent of police in Agra, said.

    Another officer who was with the victim in hospital said she had earlier rejected the hotel manager's overtures offering a massage.

    He then returned with a second man and attempted to open the door to her room with a key, the officer said.

    Swaranjeet, deputy superintendent of police in Agra, said that one person had been taken into custody on charges of harassment.

    The victim had suffered a ligament fracture in one leg but her injuries were not serious, Swaranjeet said.

    "But she is very scared and has cancelled her plans to keep travelling in India. She just wants to return home," she added.

    A member of staff at the hotel, who would not give his full name, said the manager had merely tried to wake up the victim in time for an early morning train.

    "We don't know what she thought but she jumped out of the window of her room," said the staff member.

    The incident comes just days after a Swiss cyclist was gang-raped by a group of villagers

    it may be possible that that these hippy type tourist from UK,does not have money to pay hotel bills and wrongly abused the hotel staff..

    anyhow recent attacks on foreign tourist especially on ladies is matter of concern

    in this case hotel looks like is 3rd class,only hippy type tourist stays there, they are always short of money.

    let see what comes out in the investigation . but one thing is clear it will affect the tourist flow and image of India

    Agra Mahal is not a 3rd class hotel at least going by its website

    Agra Mahal Hotel - experience the royal stay at Agra

    See, this is what I worry about in Indian men. They keep justifying the actions of such rapists.

    This can be one of the points/aspect of this case. let see what comes out in investigation. Generally white woman don''t come to visit India alone,either they come in group or with friends or family.

    only prostitute travel alone

    There are lot of white women who travel alone but not all are prostitutes and usually perform good research but some just pick up a map for some adventure and fun in some exotic country without even understanding the system.There are gangs of women from former Russian countries who are indulged in sex rackets in India and they are often caught and perhaps pay in sex to police/hotel staff to safely return back without any police case.

    The staff of these cheap hotels are experienced in hosting tourists which are indulged in hippy activities and dont mind paying up in sex if they run out of money and drugs.So these hotel staff try to have their chance as they got a typical stereotype of lone white woman as they know they might not resist or get in the hassle of filing a Police complaint in a foreign country special whose police is corrupt and irresponsible.

    So there is another angle here.... so not sure whats the case here. :hmm:

    I think this is such a shameful act. A very strict law need to be started against the increasing rape in India. But this is also a big question on security of tourist in Agra Hotels. Thousands of foreigners visit to Agra every year to see this beautiful historical city. It's time to take some steps.
