The horrifying incident occurred late Friday night in the Hansdiha area of Dumka. The couple, traveling from Bangladesh to Nepal via Jharkhand, had stopped at a deserted location to spend the night in a makeshift tent. The attackers not only allegedly raped the woman but also subjected the couple to physical assault.

Three individuals have been arrested in connection with the case, and a manhunt is underway to apprehend the remaining accused. A special investigation team (SIT) has been formed to probe the incident, as confirmed by a senior official.

The Spanish woman, approximately 28 years old, narrated the traumatic experience in an Instagram video message, revealing that seven men had raped her. She described the brutal assault, stating, “Something has happened to us that we would not wish on anyone. Seven men have raped me. They have beaten us and robbed us. Although not many things because what they wanted was to rape me.”

Both the woman and her 64-year-old husband, who sustained minor injuries, are receiving treatment at Phulo Jhano Medical College and Hospital in Dumka. Medical examinations will be conducted by a board of specialists, including gynecologists, a radiologist, an orthopedic, and a dentist, headed by the superintendent of the medical college.

The incident has sparked outrage and renewed discussions about the safety of women, both domestic and foreign, in the country.
