New Delhi: The Spanish woman who was allegedly gang raped in Dumka district in Jharkhand, last week, has left India. The woman has been travelling around the world, along with her husband, on motorcycles, for the last six years. The couple told reporters that they would continue their world tour, before leaving for Nepal via Bihar. The 28-year-old woman said that she has no complaints against the people of India as she had safely travelled around 20,000 km across the country in the last six months. She was allegedly gang-raped at Kurumahat, around 300 km from the state capital Ranchi, when she was spending the night in a tent along with her husband. The seven men allegedly barged into their tent and assaulted the husband before raping the woman.

“We chose the place for the night stay because it was calm and beautiful. We thought it would be okay if we lived there alone,” she said. The woman said that she would continue her tour along with her husband. “I want to tell some people, especially girls, to coach themselves to face such situations. I know it’s hard and it’s not easy. You don’t forget, but you have to keep trying to leave it in the past,” she said. Dumka’s Superintendent of Police Pitamber Singh Kherwar said the couple left for Bihar, from where they will enter Nepal. Three people have been arrested so far, and a search is on for the remaining four accused, police said.
