New Delhi: A group of women's rights activists Thursday held a protest outside Saudi Arabian Embassy demanding action against one of its diplomats who allegedly confined and raped two Nepalese women at his flat in Gurgaon.

The activists of All-India Democratic Women's Association shouted slogans against the diplomat and demanded justice for the two women.

They also demanded that no diplomatic immunity should be given to the diplomat.

The two women, who were allegedly confined and raped by the diplomat and his "guests", were rescued by Gurgaon Police on Monday.

Police last night had sent a "detailed" report to the External Affairs Ministry on their investigation into the case. The report was sent hours after a second medical examination of the two women confirmed rape and sodomy, said Rajesh Chechi, ACP (Crime) of Gurgaon Police.

The Saudi embassy had issued a statement yesterday terming the allegations "false" and said it has protested the police intrusion into a diplomat's house against "all diplomatic conventions".

Saudi Ambassador to India Saud Mohammed Alsati along with some embassy officials had also met senior officials to register their protest with the External Affairs Ministry.
