Women traveling alone have been crime victims in recent incidents when arriving in New Delhi on international flights. On March 11 a Japanese woman who arrived from Tokyo hired a pre-paid taxi at the airport (the “right” thing to do) and was later robbed of her belongings and $200 by the taxi driver and a “hotel owner” who offered her accommodations in his home rather than at his hotel. On March 17, an Australian woman arrived from Brisbane via Hong Kong around 2 a.m., hired a taxi from the pre-paid booth, and was killed by her taxi driver when she resisted his robbery attempt. He told police he had decided to rob her because she was alone and he noticed the heavy jewelry she was wearing. If possible, try to travel with a companion when arriving in New Delhi, especially late at night.
