#Saudi (alleged) rapist diplomat should be tried in India:#Congress

Congress spokesman Manish Tewari on Thursday said if the Saudi diplomat who has been accused of raping two Nepalese women in Gurgaon has fled India, then it would amount to a rape of the criminal justice system of the nation.

"The Saudi Government should immediately strip him of his diplomatic immunity and they should hand him over to India. The Indian Government, which has a history of aiding and abetting fugitives from the law, should not find itself aiding and abetting rapists also to escape from this country," Tewari told news agency ANI.
"We are not a banana republic that people can trample with our laws; they can rape women and get away with it. If the same thing would have happened in Saudi Arabia, they would have beheaded a person rather than allowing him to get away," he added.
 After completing all formalities with Nepalese Embassy, the victims took a Nepal Airlines flight from the IGI Airport at 11.05 am for Kathmandu. They were accompanied by officials of Maiti India Nepal NGO, including its president Bal Krishna Pandey.
The victims also want to register an FIR in Nepal against alleged human traffickers active in their country.
