INDIA — Authorities in India issued an alert for three men accused of gang-raping an American woman.

The thirty-year-old woman was picked up by the men while hitch-hiking. She said she could not find a taxi and needed a ride back to her guest house after visiting a friend.

The three men in the truck then drove to a secluded spot where they reportedly raped her.

She went to the police to file the case. No arrests have been made but authorities have set up roadblocks to check any trucks leaving town.

India has come under scrutiny after the fatal gang rape of a young woman on a moving bus in New Delhi back in December.

Police estimate only four out of ten rape incidents are reported.
