Gang-rape reports fuel anxiety in tourists visiting India
NEW DELHI (AFP) - Danish tourist Judith Jensen has a long list of don'ts to help her feel safe during her holiday in India.
She won't hail a taxi off the street, she won't stay in an obscure hotel and she won't go out after dark - all decisions made in response to the growing reporting of sexual crime in the country.
"I have read and heard so much about rape in India that now I feel this persistent sense of danger," Ms Jensen, 42, told AFP as she walked through a popular market in downtown Delhi.
The tourism ministry's ubiquitous Incredible India marketing campaign has helped boost the number of foreign visitors over the past decade to around 6.6 million a year - albeit still way behind the likes of China and Malaysia.
