New Delhi: The two Nepalese women, who were allegedly tortured and raped by a Saudi Arabian diplomat at his Gurgaon residence, left for Nepal today, police said.

"The women are not required to be physically present as far as the investigation is concerned. They went through medical examination twice and their statements have also been recorded in front of a judicial magistrate," said a senior officer of Gurgaon Police.

Meanwhile, Rajendra Man Shrestha, Police Counsellor for Nepal Embassy, went to the Gurgaon Police Commissioner's office over the ongoing investigation into the case, that came to light on Tuesday.

"The meeting between Shrestha and officials lasted for around 20 minutes, in which they shared basic details about the progress of the case and Shrestha also expressed his gratitude to Gurgaon Police for their efforts in the investigation," the officer added.

However, Shrestha couldn't meet Gurgaon Police Commissioner Navdeep Singh Virk, who went for a holiday starting from today. Virk, who is supervising a special investigation team probing the Saudi diplomat case, is expected to join on September 14, said a senior officer.
