Newsline: India police investigate rape charges against Saudi Arabian diplomat

Police in India were investigating complaints from two women that a Saudi Arabian diplomat raped them repeatedly and confined them in his home near New Delhi. He has claimed diplomatic immunity, and the Saudi embassy in a statement Wednesday denied all the allegations. The women working as maids in the diplomat’s house were rescued Monday after a non-governmental organization tipped off police. Police have registered a case of rape and illegal confinement against the official, although he has not been named in the complaint. The diplomat was at the Saudi embassy in New Delhi all day Wednesday. Deep Upadhyay, Nepal’s ambassador to India, said his country would file a complaint with the Saudi government once the investigations ended.
