This is not the first time though that a country has issued a notice for its women travelers who plan to come to India. US also published an India Travel Advisory in March this year. It said that Indian authorities report rape as one of the fastest growing crimes in India and asked to exercise increased caution.

A part of the advisory also cited instances where foreign nationals were sexually assaulted.

It said, "British women have been the victims of sexual assault in Goa, Delhi and Rajasthan and women travellers often receive unwanted attention in the form of verbal and physical harassment by individuals or groups of men. Serious sexual attacks involving foreign nationals have been reported. In April 2018, a Latvian woman was sexually assaulted and strangled in Thiruvallam, Kerala. More recently, in December 2018 a British woman was raped in Goa."
