New Delhi: Gurgaon police had requested access to the Saudi Arabian diplomat, facing charges of confinement and rape of two Nepalese women, for 'interrogation' from the External Affairs Ministry.

"The Gurgaon police had requested for the access to the diplomat vide letters dated September 9 and 10," Gurgaon police commissioner Navdeep Singh Virk said today.

"But we have not received any official communication from the Ministry of External Affairs so far in this regard," Virk said.
