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.

You can’t have allegations of a rape racket in your bedroom and think you can get away with it without any investigation.”
