New Delhi, Dec 24 (IANS) Accusing the Delhi Police for not taking his client’s case seriously, the advocate of anb American gangrape victim said he and his client were not happy with the investigation.

Advocate Mritunjay told IANS that they had been visiting the Connaught Place police station almost daily, but police didn’t cooperate with them.

Terming rape a serious problem in India and that she will not travel alone here again, the woman said she felt that “there should be a stronger law for protecting tourists from rape in India”.
