NEW DELHI, Sept 17 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – A diplomat from Saudi who has been accused of raping and torturing two of his Nepali maids at his Delhi home has left India. Activists are outraged.
Kavita Krishnan with the All India Progressive Women’s Association said: “We realise that the laws and conventions are such that there is little India could have done to prevent him from leaving… The focus and pressure has to be on the Saudis to take it up and ensure the victims get justice. You can’t have allegations of a rape racket in your bedroom and think you can get away with it without any investigation.”
