Two men who are from the US and the UK, and the women from Spain and Turkey had gone to Ajaypal Dham from Pushkar on two motorcycles yesterday when five-six unidentified men attacked them, SP Ajmer Nitin Deep Blaggan said today.

"Initially they followed and tried to tease them. When one the tourists objected, the accused hit him with a stone. They dragged one of the women and tore her clothes. The tourists managed to escape from the place and informed people who were known to them," he said.

They were rushed to a local hospital where the injured tourist was given treatment. He is under observation at a private hospital on Pushkar road, the SP said.

Additional SP Avnish Kumar said handbags of the foreigners containing money were allegedly snatched by the attackers. A hunt has been launched to nab the accused, he said.

A case against the unidentified assailants was registered late last night with Ganj police station under IPC sections 147 (rioting), 148 (rioting, armed with deadly weapon), 149 (unlawful assembly guilty of offence), 307 (attempt to murder) 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) and 395 (dacoity).

Local taxi drivers and certain other people are being questioned, another policeman said.
