The Foreign Office updated its travel advice for women travelling to India today in light of a serious sexual assault against a Swiss woman in Madyha Pradesh earlier this month.
It is thought the update was made before today's reports of a British woman escaping sexual assault.
Women should use caution when travelling in India.
Reported cases of sexual assault against women and young girls are increasing; recent sexual attacks against female visitors in tourist areas and cities show that foreign women are also at risk.
British women have been the victims of sexual assault in Goa, Delhi, Bangalore and Rajasthan and women travellers often receive unwanted attention in the form of verbal and physical harassment by individuals or groups of men.
