Saudi diplomat accused of rape leaves India

The Saudi Arabian diplomat accused of rape by two Nepalese women has left India, an official said on Wednesday.

“We learn that Saudi Embassy First Secretary Mr. Majed Hassan Ashoor, who is allegedly accused of abusing two Nepali maids, has left India. The first secretary being a diplomat is governed by the provisions of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations,” external affairs ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup said in a statement.

The diplomat was accused by the two Nepalese women of rape and Gurgaon police had filed a first information report in the case.

However, the Vienna Convention provides for diplomatic immunity to serving diplomats and their immediate families.
