Mumbai: The Malabar Hill police have registered a case of molestation against Mohammed Abdulaziz Al Khaja, consul general of Bahrain in the city, on the complaint of a woman working as a manager at his Nepean Sea Road housing society.
“We did not arrest him since he is a diplomat and enjoys diplomatic immunity. We have informed the ministry of external affairs (MEA) about the incident,” said a senior police official. The copy of the FIR and the victim’s statement have been sent to the MEA.
The 49-year-old woman, whose identity has not been disclosed, told the police that on December 9 the building elevator was shut for repairs. When Khaja found it shut he lost his temper and allegedly slammed its doors. The complainant alleged that Khaja, in a fit of rage, ransacked her office, touched her and used abusive language. This is the reason molestation charges were invoked against Khaja, said a police officer.
