Brazilian Vlogger Alleges being Gangraped in India

In a shocking incident that has sent shockwaves across the globe, a 28-year-old Brazilian vlogger was allegedly gang-raped in Dumka, in the Indian state of Jharkhand. The Indian Express reported that the horrific incident happened during the vlogger’s biking trip with her partner on Friday night. The couple was en route to Bhagalpur when they decided to halt in Dumka for the night, putting up a tent in the area.

According to Dumka Superintendent of Police Pitamber Singh Kherwar, the couple sought help from a patrolling vehicle around midnight, revealing a harrowing tale of a brutal assault. Kherwar stated, “Initially, the patrolling party did not understand much of the incident because the woman was speaking partly in English and partly in Spanish. They were taken to a nearby health center. The doctors then informed the police that the woman had been raped.”

The couple later shared a video on social media recounting the traumatic experience. In the video, the complainant said,

We are in the hospital, and something happened to us that we would not wish on anyone. Seven men raped me, and they have beaten us and robbed us, although not many things [were taken] because what they wanted was to rape me. We are in the hospital with the police; it happened tonight in India.

Confirming the distressing incident, the Brazilian embassy in New Delhi issued a statement expressing deep concern over the plight of the couple. The embassy revealed that the victims received urgent medical attention and promptly reported the crime to the local authorities.

Additionally, due to the victims’ dual nationality, the Brazilian embassy coordinated with the Spanish embassy in New Delhi to ensure comprehensive support for the affected couple.

The authorities have acted swiftly, with four suspects already arrested in connection with the case. However, the news has prompted widespread outrage on social media, with internet users expressing their dismay and concern.
