Chennai: In yet another case of crime against foreign nationals, a German woman has alleged that she was molested in the Chennai-bound Mangalore Express.

The Railway Police has filed an FIR in the case and sent the woman for medical examination.

The accused has been identified and traced down to Mangalore. A team of police officials will be going to Mangalore to secure him.

This incident comes just days after a Polish woman was allegedly raped by a taxi driver in Mathura. The woman in her police complaint said that she was abducted at knife point by a taxi driver in Mathura who later drugged and raped her. When the victim regained her senses, she found herself in Delhi's Nizamuddin area.

Back in December 2013, a Yoga instructor was arrested for raping his 25-year-old student, a Dutch woman in Goa. The accused, Krishna Sharma, who is in his thirties and hails from Uttar Pradesh, was arrested at Dabolim airport when he was trying to escape after the incident, police said.
