UK tourist jumps from hotel in India to escape harassment

A British tourist has injured her leg after jumping from a hotel balcony to escape from alleged harassment in Agra, India, according to reports.

The woman told police she asked for a wake-up call at 4am but when the hotel owner knocked at her door at that time, he offered her a massage and refused to leave, the BBC reported.

The tourist, believed to be in her 30s, said she locked the door and jumped from her balcony to the level below, injuring her leg, before fleeing the hotel.

Police have arrested the hotel owner and the Foreign Office said it was looking into reports of the incident, said the BBC.

The woman's injury has been treated and she has been moved to another hotel, said the senior superintendent of police in Agra, Subhah Chandra Dubey, and she has also been allocated two women constables for her security.

The incident follows the Foreign & Commonwealth Office's decision to update its travel advice on India in the wake of the rape of a Swiss tourist in Madyha Pradesh on Saturday.
