The woman told the police that two men dragged her to a secluded spot from a private beach resort and raped her.

An FIR has been registered in the case and four special teams have been formed to investigate the case. Three suspects have been detained by police for questioning.

“We have registered a sexual assault complaint and a manhunt has been launched to track the attackers,” the district police chief Santosh told AFP. “We are questioning suspects but arrests have been made yet.”

He said medical tests had confirmed sexual assault and the German embassy had been informed.

Sources have told TIMES NOW that the German Embassy is in touch with the German Consulate in Chennai and the Consulate Officials have spoken to the local authorities regarding the case.

The incident comes barely three weeks after a 28-year-old Irish woman was raped and murdered in the popular tourist state of Goa.

Danielle McLaughlin’s naked body was discovered in a field near a beach on March 16, with injury marks all over her body.
