Nepalese maids accuse Saudi diplomat of rape

Thursday 10th September 2015

TWO Nepalese maids have accused a Saudi diplomat of rape and torture while they were working in his home outside the Indian capital New Delhi, Indian police said yesterday.

The women have filed complaints with police alleging that the unnamed diplomat kept them locked in his apartment where they were repeatedly abused, said assistant commissioner Rajesh Kumar.

A police team rescued the women late on Monday after a third recently hired maid alerted a local NGO.

“We have registered a case of rape, sodomy and illegal confinement based on their complaint,” said Mr Kumar.

“They have also said that even guests at the house raped them.

“That is why we have added gang rape to the list of charges.”

Police said they were trying to determine whether the Saudi official had diplomatic immunity before proceeding with their investigation.

One of the women said they had been held for about four months.

    SAUDI diplomat Majed Hassan Ashoor has left India under diplomatic immunity after two Nepalese maids claimed he raped and abused them.

    The two women, who worked in the diplomat’s luxury apartment, accused him of illegally confining and raping them during the past few months.

    “The first secretary, being a diplomat, is governed by the provisions of the Vienna Convention on diplomatic relations,” said Indian External Affairs Ministry spokesman Vikas Swarup.

    Police removed the women from the apartment last week after receiving a complaint from a non-governmental organisation.

    They have since returned to Nepal.

    Although a case was registered against the diplomat, police could not act against him because of diplomatic immunity.

    The Saudi embassy denied the allegations and refused to let police question him.

    Nepalese ambassador Deep Upadhyay insisted that the case should be pursued even if the diplomat had left the country, declaring: “The victims must get justice.”
