NEW DELHI: Nepal on Thursday urged India to push for justice as it investigates a top Saudi diplomat accused of holding captive and raping two Nepalese maids, after he left the country under diplomatic immunity.
Our request is that the investigation continues and justice is provided to the victims, Shivani Basnet, second secretary at Nepals embassy in India, told television reporters.
Nepals ambassador to India, Deep Upadhyay, said the case was a very very inhuman issue and that he sought speedy justice for the alleged victims.
If there has been a crime, the criminal should be punished, Updhyay told reporters in New Delhi.
