Q.

1. In 2003, a young girl in Goa was drugged and gang-ra*p*ed by her friends after she smoked a 'cigarette' they offered her.
2. In 2007, a British tourist was drugged and se*x*ually assaulted by a friend in her hotel room in Delhi .
3. And last week, a 23-year-old American girl, a student at the Tata Institute of Social Sciences, TISS, in Trombay, was drugged and ra*p*ed by six male friends.
The common factor in all three stories? All these victims were betrayed by those they knew and trusted -- their friends.
What have you to say??

Yet another common factor is drug. The victim were lured because they wanted drugs and they had befriended their rapist for this reason. If they did not want drug the incident could have been avoided and they would have been alive today. The foreign tourists who come to India must avoid two things: drugs and company of strangers especially while they are alone.

This is not surprising. It is well-known that most victims are acquainted with their rapists. There are very few \"stranger rapes\" - most common are \"date rapes.\" However the majority of assaults reported to the police are \"stranger rapes.\"

Firstly Goa is a place which is troubled with the illegal drug trafficking,etc. All these problems come up due to drug addicts, so the local government has to look into this drug issues in goa & make it a better tourist destination.
