Jaipur Police on Hunt For Man Who Allegedly Raped Japanese Tourist


Jaipur:  Jaipur Police claim to have identified the unauthorised guide who allegedly raped a 19-year-old Japanese tourist at a spot 50 km from the city on Monday morning, and have launched a hunt for him. Police zeroed in on the suspect based on descriptions given by the alleged victim.

Police have also detained seven friends of 24-year-old Ajit Singh Chaudhary, who is a tout, or unauthorised guide. As the Japanese tourist could not recall his name, police reached their conclusion about the suspect’s identity based on the corroboration of witnesses in the Jal Mahal area, where he had allegedly befriended the alleged victim.

The 19-year-old tourist was visiting Jaipur alone and had arrived in the city from Varanasi on Sunday afternoon. After checking into a guest house she went out sightseeing. Chaudhary reportedly met her at the Jal Mahal area, one of the city’s major tourist spots.

According to the police, the girl agreed to visit some tourist spots with him, impressed with his English skills. He took her to a friends place for tea and snacks and also introduced her to some family members. Once he won the girl’s trust, he allegedly offered to drop to her hotel at night.

But instead of dropping her to the hotel, he took her on his bike to an isolated spot outside the city, nearly 50 km away, where he allegedly raped her. After the crime, the girl managed to get away and raised an alarm. She was then helped by passers-by, who informed the police early on Monday morning.
