Panaji police have registered a case after they received the communication from Delhi police, with whom the woman has filed the complaint.

Police stated that the incident occurred on March 7 in a five star hotel where she was dragged into a room from a stairway and raped by an unknown person.

The incident was reported to Delhi police on March 17.

The New-York based woman, who did not file a case in Goa, went to Delhi and filed a complaint there. Officials confirmed that the Delhi police had conducted medical examination on the woman, who was in Goa on a vacation.

Panaji police, confirming the receipt of complaint, said that they will call the victim to Goa, as she is required for a medical examination.
