Bahraini diplomat charged with molesting woman in Mumbai

Mumbai, Dec 25 : Police have charged a Bahraini diplomat here with allegedly abusing a woman manager of his housing society in the posh Malabar Hill neighbourhood, an officer said Wednesday.

The Malabar Hill police have charged Consul General Mohammed Abdulaziz al Khaja but have not arrested him in view of his diplomatic immunity.

The complainant, a 49-year-old woman, contended that the diplomat became angry when one of the building's lifts was not working Dec 9. Finding the lift shut for maintenance work, the diplomat banged on the lift doors.

The woman said when she attempted to restrain him, he ransacked her office in the building, used abusive language and even touched her, police said.

The diplomat again kicked up a ruckus Dec 20, after which the woman lodged a complaint.

The woman has been working in the society for about a decade. The diplomat has been living there for nearly five years.
