Manali: The Himachal Pradesh Police have launched a hunt to nab two men accused of sexually assaulting a 25-year-old Israel national in Manali on Sunday.

After the victim arrived in Manali, some 250 km from the state capital Shimla, yesterday, she alleged that two men offered her a lift when she could not find a taxi.

As per investigation officer Gandhi Ram, the victim said the accused took her to a secluded spot on the outskirts of Manali and sexually assaulted her.

 

"She was medically examined at a hospital in Manali. The victim asked for more tests. So she was taken to Sundernagar town on Sunday night," he said.

The victim informed the police that her friends left her alone in Manali for a further journey to Kaza in the Spiti Valley.

This has been the second incident involving a foreign tourist since June 2013 when a US national was raped by three cab drivers in Manali.
