The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) on Wednesday sought for a detailed report from the police on the sexual assault case of Nepalese women at Saudi diplomat’s residence in Delhi-NCR area (Gurgaon).

“We are seeking details from the local police,” MEA spokesperson Vikas Swarup said.

The police rescued the girls on Tuesday evening after an NGO registered a case of trafficking of two Nepalese girls. A diplomat at the Saudi Arabia embassy in New Delhi has been booked for rape while his wife and daughter have been booked for torturing domestic helps in Gurgaon.

“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. The Nepali women were lured on pretext of all comforts and high salary for a job in Saudi Arabia by a woman in Nepal six months ago,” Rajesh Kumar, Assistant Commissioner of Police(ACP), said here.

“After keeping the duo for some time in Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, both were brought to Gurgaon. The victims were raped and gangraped by the diplomat and his friends and guests,” Kumar added.

Kumar said that a case against the diplomat and “unknown people” has been registered at the DLF-2 police station under various sections of gang-rape (376 D), rape (376), unnatural sex (377) and some other sections of Indian Penal Code .
