    Spanish Travel Vlogger Shares Harrowing Account of Gang Rape in Jharkhand: Urges Others Not to Regret Visiting India

    The 28-year-old is back in Spanish Travel Vlogger with her husband and reflected on her journey on her motorbike through 67 countries, including Indi

    The Spanish travel vlogger, who was allegedly robbed and gang-raped in Jharkhand’s Dumka earlier in March, in a recent interview to South China Morning Post (SCMP), however, said she does not regret coming to India as the tragedy could have happened in any part of world.

    “I think everyone in the world expects me to say ‘Don’t go to India’, but life is far more complicated than that. What happened to me could have happened anywhere else. Not so long ago, a couple travelling in Belize, in Central America, the same thing happened to them,” the woman told SCMP.

    The 28-year-old is back in Spain with her husband and reflected on her travel journey on her motorbike. The couple shared their travelling experiences in 67 countries, including India.

    “Yes, I left the house and yes, I took risks, but I do not regret it. I do not regret going to India or anything about our journey. Maybe, we could have gone just another way or stayed in a hotel. But using the same logic, something worse could have happened and I would not be alive. Accidents can happen anywhere, even within the safety of your house,” she added.

    The woman further shared her riding experience through Afghanistan after the Taliban invasion.

    She said, “Afghanistan was quite complicated because I was the first woman to enter the country on a motorbike since the Taliban took over. They are not used to seeing women driving, so the whole experience was quite bizarre.”

    “We were on the highway to the first city, Herat, when a Taliban patrol stopped us. They came at us with all these weapons, AK-47s pointing at us, we were really scared, and when they saw I was a woman they called every Taliban in the area to see,” she added

    The woman asserted that she would not end her travel journey and would continue soon.

    The Spanish travel vlogger was allegedly gang-raped by seven men in the Dumka district of Jharkhand on March 1 while she, along with her husband, was spending the night in a tent.
