MEA asks Saudi envoy to extend cooperation to Gurgaon Police in rape case

New Delhi, Sept.10 (ANI): The Chief of Protocol of the Ministry of External Affairs, Jaideep Mazumdar, met the Ambassador of Saudi Arabia, Saud Mohammed Alsati, on Thursday, and conveyed the request of the Government of Haryana to allow that state’s police to investigate the rape case of two Nepali citizens, allegedly by a Saudi diplomat.

“MEA Chief of Protocol called in Saudi Ambassador today and conveyed request of Haryana Police for cooperation of embassy in the case of two Nepali citizens,” MEA spokesperson Vikas Swarup said.

The request was made a day after Gurgaon Police sent a report about the case to the ministry for further action.

Gurgaon Police last night had sent a “detailed” report to the ministry on their investigation into the case. The report was sent hours after a second medical examination of the two women confirmed rape and sodomy, said Rajesh Chechi, Assistant Commissioner of Police (Crime) of Gurgaon Police.

The Saudi Embassy had issued a statement yesterday terming the allegations “false” and said it has protested the police “intrusion” into a diplomat’s house against “all diplomatic conventions”.

The Saudi Ambassador along with some embassy officials had also met senior MEA officials on Wednesday to register their protest. (ANI)
