Saudi Arabia: Majed Hassan Ashoor, the Saudi Arabian diplomat accused of sexual assault on two Nepali maids has exited India, said the External Affairs Ministry on Wednesday evening. With his departure, the Ministry may have escaped a tough diplomatic imbroglio, it has been said.
Ashoor’s silent departure appears to be part of a diplomatic bargain struck between India and Saudi Arabia after the high-level intervention of National Security Adviser Ajit Doval.
Rasgotra said the Saudis were “frightfully important to India at the moment due to the global circumstances and the Saudi diplomat’s departure seems like a solution arrived at through mutual consultation”.
However, activists are not satisfied because they believe that full justice has not been served to the maids. As per the reports, Ashoor’s departure will not probably affect the investigation by the police in Nepal in Kathmandu.Saudi diplomat flees from India.
