Saudi diplomat booked for alleged rape

A Saudi diplomat booked for allegedly raping two Nepali women, police said.

The women, aged around 30, have alleged that they were abducted and raped by the diplomat repeatedly in a flat, on the outskirts of Delhi.

The victims have alleged that they were first taken to Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, where they were made to perform household chores and were raped there, ACP Rajesh said.

Sometime back they were taken to Gurgaon flat, where even guests of the family also raped them, he said, adding the flat had been taken on rent by the Saudi Embassy based in Delhi.

“One new maid visited the flat and witnessed the miseries of these two women and left the house. That maid reported the matter to an NGO, which informed the police,” Mr. Rajesh said.

Gurgaon police raided the flat in DLF Phase-II and rescued the two women.

An FIR has been filed, but no arrest has been made so far. Gurgaon police have contacted the Nepal Embassy for assistance.

“We have sought a report from local police,” MEA spokesperson said, while commenting on the matter.

The Saudi Embassy is in touch with External Affairs Ministry regarding the matter.
