Switzerland has said that it is ’profoundly shocked’ by the gang-rape and has demanded that those responsible for the "tragic incident" be quickly identified and punished.

Terming it as a "tragic incident", a foreign ministry statement in Bern said, Swiss diplomats in India are in contact with the local authorities and have "demanded that those responsible be quickly identified and brought before the courts".

The Swiss embassy in New Dehli and the consulate in Mumbai are also providing support to the couple, whose names have not been released, Swiss Broadcasting Corporation’s website reported.

I read this sad news in many U.S. papers, and this news is spreading around the world. India was emerging like an economically advancing country before the world; now it is turning like the leading nation in rape and gang-rape of both the Indians and the foreigners. This will drive away the tourists from India. Indian outdated judicial laws must be re-written to punish these two legged animals exactly like wild animals; until the law is not drastically changed, more rapes would be the main headlines in the news papers.

It is very sad.These things sometimes never get reported . As an older woman I would caution women to learn self defense. My dad taught me to punch like a guy and punched a guy once and he left me alone. How are raising boys that this behavior was acceptable.

this way the tourists will gradually start boycotting India and even the Indians will start fleeing the country . what is wrong with these people. and what world do they live in assuming they would get away with something like this,especially after the delhi gangrape case.

why the bloody hell do they cover the culprits face ... robbing someone is one thing but gang rape who the fuck they think they are bloody animals. India is soon going to be known as the rape country.
