In a new development in the Gurgaon rape case allegedly involving a Saudi diplomat, official sources from NGO Maiti India have confirmed that the two Nepalese women are likely to be brought back from their country to the capital this week .
“On Sunday, the women had recorded their statements with Nepal police. They will be produced before a magistrate on Monday. Both the victims have constantly been accompanied by police and are yet to go back to their respective villages,” said Indira Pandey, Member, Maiti India, Gurgaon.
Meanwhile, sources have revealed that the third domestic help was also brought to the flat of the Saudi diplomat by the same agent, Anwar, who lured the Nepalese women to the capital. It was she who had brought the matter to the attention of Maiti India, which later rescued the Nepalese women.
In her account to the NGO, the woman said that she was hired as a cook by the diplomat’s family. But she alleged that they ill-treated her and made her do a lot of cleaning and washing throughout the day, and did not allow her to rest.
The woman also told the NGO that she would be woken up early by a “lady” who was not of Saudi origin.
Sources have also said that the three women were kept separately and not allowed too much interaction.
“In her account to the NGO, the woman also mentioned a security guard who helped her get a mobile phone. However, police have not contacted the guard yet,” said an official.
