GUWAHATI: Police on Saturday registered a case against five persons, including a guide, for allegedly gang-raping an American tourist at a five-star hotel here. 


On Friday a complaint was filed by an NGO alleging that an American tourist had been gang-raped by five men in Connaught Place in March. “The complaint alleges that five men entered the woman’s room on the pretext of some tour and travel-related work and raped her,” police said. 


According to the police, the victim said that she did not approach them as she was scared and returned to the US. The accused had also threatened her of dire consequences if she told anybody about it, the complaint said. External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj tweeted promising quick action in the case.
