A British tourist in India was badly injured this morning after she reportedly jumped out of the window of her hotel room to escape the aggressive sexual advances of the hotel's owner.
The unnamed tourist, said to be in her 30s, was staying at the Hotel Agra Mahal in Agra — home of the Taj Mahal — when she allegedly received an unsolicited visit from the hotel's owner, Sachin Chauhan, at around 5 AM local time.
He then offered the guest a "free oil massage," insisting that it was one of the hotel's amenities. The tourist refused, but Chauhan allegedly persisted, forcing himself on the woman.
While in custody, the hotel's owner told police he had gone to wake the woman up after staffers were unable to rouse her using the hotel's intercom system, and became concerned.
