The high profile rape case against a Saudi Arabian diplomat in New Delhi earlier this week, involving two maids from Nepal who the family hired, have bigger implications than what is assumed. Even as the women were made to do all the housework, they were kept captive in the house, starved, and repeatedly raped and subject to sexual torture not just by the diplomat but also 7-8 other men who’d visit his house. Two separate medical tests show injuries and infections that are consistent with long term and severe sexual torture. Guests of the diplomat would watch porn and play out “acts” featured in it including penetrating the women with objects and “sex toys. There were severe injuries to the genitals and breasts, and pelvic and anal infections from prolonged abuse. The women were in a state of neglect, as they were not allowed to bathe unless they were to be raped, and their clothes were tattered.

Since the accused has diplomat immunity, and has also denied the rape charges, India appears to be undecided on how it will deal with this case.

However what is also critical to this case is that it’s part of a larger and more extensive ongoing investigation of the trafficking of Nepali girls to the Gulf and African nations. The operation launched in March 25, 2015 was being conducted by the Nepal’s Central Intelligence Burea (CIB) and was codenamed ‘Operation Eagle.’

The operation established that Nepalese girls were being lured by traffickers and sent off to dance bars in Africa, Dubai and other countries like Bahrain via India.  Particularly after the devastating earthquake earlier this year, thousands of girls and women are vulnerable targets for international traffickers. A number of persons–including one Indian National– have already been arrested in connection with trafficking of young Nepali girls, and cases of human trafficking has been registered against them at the District Court in Kathmandu.

Hemant Malla, chief of the Central Investigation Bureau (CIB) of Nepal said, “We will, of course, be interested in knowing the details of the role played by the accused Saudi diplomat. We would also like to connect this incident with Operation Eagle. We are waiting for a response from the Nepalese embassy in India. After we receive Indian police documents from our embassy, we will think of pursuing this further.”
