Consul General of Bahrain, Mohammed Abdulaziz Al Khaja, facing two cases for allegedly molesting and threatening the Manager of a housing society in the city where he stayed, has left the country, police said today.
"Khaja left the country last night. He returned to his country apparently before his tenure as the Consul General got over," a senior police officer told PTI.
Additional Police Commissioner Krishna Prakash said Khaja has left but refused to divulge further details. The city police accordingly shared the development with the state government which subsequently informed the department concerned in Delhi.
A case has been filed against the diplomat on a complaint by the Manager of the housing society on Napean Sea Road in south Mumbai. Khaja stayed on the fourth floor of the society building. The Manager, a woman, had early this month lodged a police complaint accusing Khaja of molesting her.
According to another complaint, the Bahraini diplomat came to the society office on Thursday and was talking to its Chairman when he reportedly pointed a finger at the Manager, abused and threatened to kill her.
The 49-year-old victim had earlier said Khaja lost his cool after one of the elevators of the building was shut for repairs on December 9. He was slamming the door of the elevator when she saw him and requested him to maintain his cool. However, Khaja did not stop and ransacked the office in a fit of rage, police said, quoting the complainant.
The victim alleged Khaja had touched her and used abusive language during the commotion. She approached the Malabar Hill Police which conducted a preliminary inquiry and registered a complaint. However, police did not arrest the envoy as he enjoys diplomatic immunity.
Police said Khaja had allegedly tried to create a ruckus again on December 20 in the building where he had been staying for the last five years.
