British tourist jumps out of window fleeing India sex attack
NEW DELHI (AFP) - A female British tourist was admitted to hospital after jumping through a hotel window on Tuesday over fears of a sex attack in the Indian city of 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 4:00 am.
"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, told AFP.
Another officer who was with the victim in hospital said she had earlier rejected the hotel manager's overtures offering a massage.
