Gurgaon: The Haryana police on Tuesday booked a diplomat of Saudi Arabian embassy in New Delhi for rape while his wife and daughter have been booked on charges of domestic violence.
But the Saudi embassy, dismissing the charges as “completely false” and “contrary to facts in our possession”, said they would wait for the Indian government to clarify the matter as per diplomatic norms.
A Saudi embassy official also disapproved of the way police was damaging a person and a country’s reputation on the basis of mere charges made by a third person and said it was violative of the rights of the diplomat and his family.
The diplomat, who has not been named, and his unknown friends and guests have been booked for raping, gang-raping two Nepali women while his wife and daughter have been booked for torturing the victims.
Two Nepali women were on Monday evening “rescued” from an apartment flat on the fifth floor of Ambience Island Caitriona complex here. The victims were “rescued” after the intervention of the Nepalese embassy and with the help of an NGO Maiti India, police said.
