Window leap tourist to arrive back in UK
A BRITISH woman who was injured when she leapt from a hotel window in India, apparently in fear of a sexual assault, is to return to Britain.
The tourist told police she had requested a 4am wake-up call but the manager who came to the door allegedly offered her a massage and refused to leave. The woman was admitted to hospital with minor leg injuries after she fled by jumping from the window of the Hotel Agra Mahal in the northern city of Agra, close to the Taj Mahal.
Two men have been charged over the incident and are due to appear in court.
The episode comes days after a Swiss woman was gang-raped while camping with her husband during a holiday in the neighbouring state of Madhya Pradesh.
British Government advice urges women to “exercise caution” in India, even when travelling as part of a group.
