The Swiss Foreign Ministry has said today that the gang-rape of a Swiss woman in central India is "deeply disturbing", NBC News is reporting.
Swiss Foreign Ministry spokesman Tilman Renz said that Swiss diplomats were assisting the couple.
The diplomats called on Indian authorities "to do everything to quickly find the perpetrators so that they can be held accountable", Renz said in a statement.
Last month, the Swiss government issued a travel notice for India that included a warning about "increasing number of rapes and other sexual offences" in the South Asian nation.
