NEW DELHI (AFP) - A Polish woman was drugged and raped as she travelled to the Indian capital with her two-year-old daughter, police said on Sunday, the latest in a string of sexual attacks on women in the country.
The woman, 33, and her daughter were travelling in a taxi from the city of Mathura where they live to New Delhi last Thursday when she was allegedly raped by the driver.
The driver drugged the woman at some point during the 150-kilometre journey and she was attacked after she passed out, Delhi police spokesman Rajan Bhagat told AFP.
The woman woke up on a bench outside a railway station in New Delhi with her toddler crying by her side, the officer said, adding that details of the attack were still unknown.
