The couple, who were exploring South Asia on a motorcycle, were attacked by a group of men after it went dark in the evening.

The primary motive of the attackers was to sexually assault the woman, it has been alleged.

Disturbing footage shows the 31-year-old woman terrified as she recounts the harrowing experience.

“There were seven men and they raped me,” said the victim.

“They robbed thrashed us and robbed us, but their main aim was to rape me.”

“They brutally thrashed us,” her husband man added in Spanish.

“Also, they put a knife around my neck and told me that they would kill me.

“We are at the hospital with police. It happened tonight here in India.”

Cops have so far arrested three suspects, while the other four still remain at large.

Authorities revealed that one of the arrested suspects had confessed to the crime and provided significant information regarding the fugitives.

A manhunt has been launched to find the remaining men.

Chief of Cops Pitambar Singh Kherwar said: “The patrolling team sensed that something had happened to them.

“Since they were speaking in Spanish, the police could not understand what they were saying. The policemen brought them to a local hospital.”

“The investigation started as soon as we received the information. We spoke to the victim.

“We detained some people and during interrogation, they admitted their involvement.

“The accused also took some other names. We have formed a team and raids are being conducted to nab the other accused.”

The Spanish couple were on an Asia tour, it has been understood.

They entered India through West Bengal after travelling through Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

They had plans to visit Bihar before continuing to Nepal.
