Argentine Tourist Dies After Freak Bull Attack in Jaipur

The death of the 29-year-old tourist prompted officials to crack down on illegal dairies running in in Jaipur, according to reports.


A tourist from Argentina was mauled to death by a bull in Jaipur on Nov. 19. The man was taken to the hospital immediately but he died after suffering injuries on the neck.

John Pablo, 29, was visiting the pink city with another tourist when he was hit by a bull, the police said. He was taken to a government hospital where he died. The incident took place at the area under Manak Chowk Police Station. He had arrived in India on Oct. 27. The Embassy of Argentina was informed about the incident, the police said.

The Jaipur Municipal Corporation reportedly cracked down on illegal dairies running in the city after Pablo’s death, according to Times Now.

Tourist arrivals in Rajasthan during 2015-16 (up to December 2015) were 36.66 million, according to India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF) — a trust established by the Department of Commerce, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Government of India.

Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan, is part of the golden triangle of tourism, which also includes Agra and Delhi. One can easily do the tour of the three cities in 4-5 days.

In July, 2017, a bike rider was horrifically injured after a bull charged at him in Hanumangarh, Rajasthan. The bull tackled the man, who fell from his bike, and lay in a pool of blood before being taken to the hospital.

The accidental death of a British tourist recently also exposed the unpredictable situations that can arise in India. In October, British national Roger James, 58, fell off a height of 30-35 feet from the second floor of the famous Laxmi temple at Orchha in Madhya Pardesh while taking a selfie. James was with his wife when the incident took place.

“Other tourists and officials on duty called an ambulance and he was taken to the Orchha government hospital and from there he was referred to Jhansi, looking at the seriousness of his injuries,” Tikamgarh Additional SP Rajesh Khaka had said then. “However, his wife insisted that he be taken to Ram Raja hospital in Orchha, where he died during treatment.”
