A court in India has sentenced a school teacher to two years imprisonment for forcibly kissing a German tourist and trying to outrage her modesty


The court said such incidents were blots on Indian culture and fined the teacher 1,000 rupees ($21), the Asian Age daily reported.

Police had registered a case against the teacher soon after the tourist complained that the man tried to molest her when she was visiting a school in Jhunjhunu district, 150 kilometres south-west of New Delhi, in March this year.

Rajasthan is one of India's most popular tourist destinations and the incidents of molestation and rape of foreign tourists is causing the administration concern.

A court in Rajasthan recently sentenced an MBA student to seven years in jail for raping a German research student.

The verdict in another case in which a Japanese tourist alleged she was raped by the son of a hotel owner, is likely to be delivered this week.
