Six men to appear in court over gang-rape of Swiss woman
DATIA, India (AFP) - Six men accused over the gang-rape and robbery of a Swiss cyclist holidaying in India will appear in court in a central Indian state on Monday, police said.
"We have detained all the six persons and they will be produced before the magistrate after lunch today. We will ask for a police remand for five days for all of them," local police official M.L. Dhody told AFP.
Out of the six arrested men, four will be charged with gang-rape, Mr Dhody said, since the other two were "only present at the crime scene".
All the men face robbery charges as police say they stole a laptop, a mobile phone and 10,000 rupees (S$230) from the couple as they pitched their tent in a remote forested area of Madhya Pradesh state late Friday.
