Jaipur: Police on Wednesday arrested at least six people in connection with beating and manhandling a Spanish couple in Ajmer in Rajasthan.
According to ANI report, the arrests were made on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, all the six accused including a minor were rounded up by the police for 24 hours. The police also recovered all the looted items they had looted from the couple.
According to police, most the of the arrested persons have criminal past and have been previously named in a series of crimes.
According to reports, the couple had rented a bike and were on their way to Ajaypal, situated on the back side of the Taragarh hills, when the incident took place.
The attackers apparently tried to sexually assault the Spanish woman while the male tourist's head was injured after he was attacked with a stone.
"They came here from Pushkar. At around 5 pm, they were attacked by some men, who were consuming liquor."
One of the drunk men even tried to hold hands of one of the tourists... One person got injured," Superintendent of Police (SP) Nitin Deep told reporters here.
The miscreants later fled the spot when the woman reportedly called up the owner of the hotel they were staying in.
The owner arrived at the spot a little while later and took the couple to a hospital in Ajmer. The police has launched a manhunt to nab the miscreants who are still at large.
