No rooms for Chinese travelers: Indian hotel body issues a ban

3,000 establishments in Delhi told to refuse service as backlash grows

Chinese travelers are banned from staying at roughly 3,000 budget hotels in the Indian capital. 

TOKYO -- An Indian hotel industry group has issued a blanket ban of Chinese travelers at its roughly 3,000 member lodging facilities as anti-China sentiment rises following a fatal military clash between the two countries in the Himalayas last month. 

"In view of the nefarious activities of China, it has been decided that no Chinese will be accommodated in Delhi's hotels and guest houses from now onwards," the Delhi Hotel and Restaurant Owners Association said in a statement in late June.
