Briton injured fleeing feared sex attack



A female British tourist suffered leg injuries after she jumped out of a hotel window over fears of a sex attack in the Indian city of Agra, home to the Taj Mahal, police say.

Despite ATS' seeming policy to keep this emerging news hush-hush (probably due to India being pegged as the U.S.'s new 'billion man club' Asian ally in the face of the hack-happy China), the rape anxiety in India is increasing.

Seems to me that this has been an extant problem in the region and its only now, that focus on this part of the world has increased, that we're now being introduced to the dark underbelly of these tardy-to-evolve 'developing countries'.

So the staff is claiming that the manager was just trying to make sure she was awake for an early morning train- by using his pass key and with an accomplice in tow? I guess a normal wake up call just wouldn't suffice. Evidently the lady was awake already or she wouldn't have known they were trying to enter her room or been able to jump out the _ The sad part- if guilty this guy has probably done it before and nothing was done about it.

I just read that story on sky news heres the link. They dont mention the staff saying he was only trying to wake her.

There is a slight chance that the woman was paranoid due to the recent reports of tourists being targeted, but in all honesty I believe her. I think you have to be crazy to want to travel there alone!

My suggestion? Before you travel, look at the countries history on how it treats their women! I sure as hell do NOT condone any woman being raped, however, be responsible as to your surroundings and by all means do NOT think that because you are a tourist that the police of that country can or will protect you!

I was talking with this girl who told me she went to India for a 2 week vacation. She was tall with long blond hair and was pretty. She said guys kept coming up to her and asking her for sex. She said they thought she was a prostitute because she had long blond hair. The third day she bought a hat and stuffed all her hair up into it. She went back out and said she never had another guy ask her and she had a nice time. I hope women follow this woman's example and disguise themselves.

India just like most of Africa is a filth pit. Think about it they crap in the same rivers they drink from.
And then people wonder why they have issues when they visit on holiday.



Whenever you see pictures or TV of India every street is filled with 100s of men starring like predators waiting for any opportunity to take advantage. They are very creepy people.



I know my post is not politically correct but it is honest.

In speaking to many indians at work, generally there is a notion/stereotype/msm controlled opinion about girls from the west as most of them are into porn and sex. Thats the sad reality. Nobody shows the normal side of a society anywhere these days. If you ask many students and adults in US about India, they would describe the stereotypes/negative aspects of the society which is not their fault but the education system and the MSM which control the minds of the masses.

I'm still amazed people spend money to vacation in places like India and Mexico, where stories of rape and violence to tourists are so frequent. Is it lack of common sense?

Which river would that be? Do you think they lack water departments? How would that affect your visit or have issues on holiday? We're talking about rape here. Below links have some factual information/stats (not the latest though).

Or they could be looking at the camera
Read my response above. MSM controls your mind. Surely if you focus the cameras on neglected and poor neighborhoods, the folks will be starring from shock/puzzlement as per why is someone here after all these years.
Shall we pay a visit to some of the bad neighborhoods in our country ? (assuming you're from US).


I know my post is not politically correct but it is honest.
Well you're partially correct

Well I went to Turkey for ten days last summer with my fiance, Never before have I received so much male attention! at first I was flattered but as the holiday went on it became very creepy, I dont know if it was the blonde hair and blue eyes or just the fact that I was a 'westener'. I became afraid to leave my partners side, it was such a beautiful place and it was a 5star resort we stayed in for most of the time, just shows you are not immune from the male attention no matter where you stay,

I've been to turkey (istanbul) myself. Most of the turkish women are gorgeous (i'm a guy). Its a very cosmopolitan country. There are plenty of german and russian women as well in the mix. If not anything the men are pretty protective about their women. But not sure how a single western tourist might get treated though.

Yes they have some truly stunning women over there I seen plenty. I dont know what it is that attracts the Turkish men to foreign women but its common knowledge among many here that if you are female and go to Turkey prepare for a lot of attention, a turkish guy told us it is because some of the men think that if they can marry an Irish/English/American etc woman then they can have a better life with better opportunities to make money, i dont know, but after going there i would never go back on my own.

That might be true and legitimate reason (economic prosperity). Either the turkish men are dogs or you must be extremely beautiful
Nevertheless, better to be safe then sorry by not travelling alone.

India Passes Rape Bill


– Women’s rights advocates and victims of sexual offenses have long accused a male-dominated police force of refusing to register complaints by women, and even facilitating a monetary settlement or brokering a marriage between victims of rape and the accused.

– The bill creates a separate offense to address acid attacks, common in South Asian countries, especially by men who are spurned by women they express an interest in.

Under the bill, those convicted of throwing acid on a woman, causing “permanent or partial damage or deformity,” or maiming or disfiguring her, will be punished with prison sentences ranging from 10 years to life and a fine.

With an eye to the rehabilitation of the victim, the bill says the fine should be paid to the woman as compensation.

– The bill defines sexual harassment, which includes “physical contact and advances involving unwelcome and explicit sexual overtures,” a demand for sexual favors and showing pornography to a woman who does not want to see it. Those convicted of harassment can receive prison sentences of up to three years.

Making “sexually colored” remarks is also included in the definition of sexual harassment, for which the bill prescribes a prison sentence of up to a year.

– The bill criminalizes the forced stripping of women, or disrobing, in public spaces or in private confines, with a minimum jail term of three years and a maximum of seven. Under the current law, disrobing a woman is not a separate offense.

He

– One of the more controversial provisions in the bill is the section on voyeurism, which seeks to punish men who watch or photograph women who are conducting a “private act,” such as bathing, using the toilet or having sex.

The bill lays down a punishment of three to seven years in prison for those convicted of voyeurism more than once.

Voyeurism is not a separate offense under the current law.

– The bill creates another new, and much-debated, offense: stalking. This provision deals with men who follow a woman and establish contact with her or attempt to do so “to foster personal interaction repeatedly despite a clear indication of disinterest” by the woman.

E-stalking, or monitoring of a woman’s activities online, such as browsing or checking of e-mail, has also been made punishable.

– The bill expands the definition of rape to include not just penovaginal intercourse but the insertion of an object or any other body part into a woman’s vagina, urethra or anus, and oral sex.

– The bill raises the age of consent for sex to 18. This means that intercourse with a woman under 18 is statutory rape and courts conducting rape trials cannot consider whether the woman consented to having sex. It also, in effect, criminalizes consensual sex with women under 18, a subject of much controversy.

– The bill does not make marital rape an offense, ignoring a longstanding demand of women’s rights advocates.
– The bill takes a tough stand on rape by public servants. Under the current law, when a rape is committed by a police officer or prison staff, those convicted can be punished with sentences ranging from 10 years to life.
The bill clarifies that imprisonment for life means the convict must remain in prison till the end of his natural life.
The bill also allows women to bring a complaint of rape against members of the armed forces.

– When a rape leaves a woman dead or in a “persistent vegetative state,” the bill demands a minimum sentence of 20 years in prison and a maximum punishment of death. This is the first time that the death penalty is being prescribed for sexual offenses in India, which, unlike nearly all European nations, retains the death sentence, but uses it only in the “rarest of rare cases.”

– The bill increases the minimum punishment for gang rape from 10 years imprisonment to 20 years, and the maximum punishment to life imprisonment.
– The bill provides for life imprisonment or death for repeat offenders convicted of rape and gang rape.
– The bill makes procedural changes to address concerns that women are uncomfortable or intimidated by male police officers, or are treated with insensitivity when they approach police stations to register complaints of sex crimes.
The bill requires that all initial reports involving sexual harassment, disrobing, voyeurism, stalking, rape and gang rape be taken by women officers only.
– In order to ensure speedy trial, the bill requires that rape trials be completed “as far as possible” within two months from the time the police file charges against the accused.

India, like China, started practicing sex-selective abortion after ultrasound technology enabled people to tell the sex of a fetus. Now they have a huge disparity in the number of males vs females. This might be part of the problem.

Generally Turkey is a conservative muslim society so men and women do not have girlfriends. They are normally controlled by their families over who and who not they have relationships with as far as the opposite sex goes. foreign women from western countries do not have this baggage and the chance of having a relationship with a foreign woman is much higher than with a turkish woman. You and your kindred are a breath fo fresh air for Turkish men. It is possible that some turkish men would want to marry a foreign woman if say they could get easier access to the USA but I don't think this it is a problem for the EU.

Anyway beauty is in the eye of the beholder and some of them may just like blondes!!
