A 36-year-old tourist from Finland has alleged she was raped in Mumbai on December 17.

According to Police Commissioner (Navi Mumbai), the incident came to light on December 18 when the woman went to a private hospital for some treatment.

It was there, the Commissioner said, she confirmed she was raped by an unknown person who offered her a lift the previous night.

The case was immediately referred to police and initial investigations suggested the woman was drunk and was trying to find an autorickshaw to take her to her place of stay.

However, when she couldn’t find a public transport, she reportedly sought a ride from a passer-by who allegedly drove her to an isolated location and raped her.
