Ambience Island Caitriona

New Delhi: An eminent locality with well-lit driveways, plush parking lots and skyscrapers is a lap of luxury and a symbol of opulence. Gurgaon’s Ambience Island is one such community.

Not many would have doubted this palatial locality for breeding a man who doesn’t deserve to be called a man. Recently, a Saudi diplomat, Majed Hassan Ashoor, was accused of abducting, raping and starving two Nepalese women at his home.

As per the media reports, the diplomat took these two women from Nepal to Jeddah, promising a well-paid job, which never materialised. Instead, these two women were not only made to do the domestic work, but were sexually exploited as well.

The torture-session in Jeddah didn’t satisfy his senses as he chose to come to India, in a deluxe place like Caitriona complex in Gurgaon, where these two women saw the worst of brutality.

As appalling as it could get, it was not just the diplomat who tormented these women, but he was joined by his wife and daughter as well. The mother-daughter duo would thrash the two Nepali-maids-400x260

women on a regular basis. With no specific reason for such animosity towards these two individuals, the torture wasn’t limited to juse thrashing.

The diplomat allegedly called many of his other ‘diplomat’ friends to partake in these sessions of torture and sexual violations of their bodies. The other diplomats, allegedly, raped these women after having watched porn in order to practice violent acts on them. The women were penetrated with sex toys and other objects that led to genital bruises and abrasions.

These two women were subjected to violence that is beyond imagination. Although, the medical examination revealed genital injuries, urine infection and other bruises, but would it be possible to fathom the level of mental pain that these two underwent for months?

They were repeatedly starved, kicked, raped and gang-raped by the diplomat and his friends. It is hard to believe that two women inflicted pain on the two others!

Under the ‘Vienna Convention On Diplomatic Relations’, the diplomat is liable for an immunity. It is this very immunity that allowed him to escape this critical (and criminal) situation and seek resort at the Saudi Arabian embassy where Indian law would not be able to reach him. Due to the Convention, the diplomats who allegedly raped the two women are not subject to India’s jurisdiction.

Moreover, the Saudi Arabia embassy rejected these allegations by dismissing them as “completely baseless” and filed a complaint against the raid that was conducted in the diplomat’s house for they consider this to be a violation of a diplomatic rules.

Ashoor left India and so did the two women. The former, under the security of Vienna Convention, got away but whatever he did to those women would never desert them.

Recently, advertisements can be seen repeatedly in the past few days, announcing the arrival not of the Donald Trump but of his eldest son. The Donald Trump Jr. landed in India yesterday and is slated to sell his luxury apartments and lavish attention on wealthy Indians.  The advertisement further charms the people with “a conversation and dinner” with Trump Jr., if buyers who order apartments in the development by Thursday.

After Trump Jr. landed in India, he was seen posing for photos in New Delhi with Indian developers. One of the builders included Kalpesh Mehta. His firm is supposed to be the main Indian partner for Trump-brand real estate projects.

Although, during his election campaigns, President Donald Trump has pledged to avoid any new foreign business deals during his term in office. One of the better reasons for this was seen as to avoid potential ethical conflicts. But the visit by his Donald Trump’s son has directed the promises made by his father in some other direction. Moreover, Trump Jr. is flying around the world trying to trade on the fact that his father is sitting in the Oval Office. The global experts have long seen the use of the Trump name to promote even existing business ventures as a tricky territory.

The shocker over here is the scheduled speech of Trump Jr. about Indo-Pacific relations at a New Delhi business summit and the Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to share the stage with him. This has raised another set of ethics concerns by offering his thoughts on international relations, that too when Trump Jr. is not holding any portfolio in the US government. By sharing the stage with government officials and talking about international relations, he is surely portraying himself as an informal ambassador for the US.

Last November, Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump visited India with an altogether different agenda than that of Trump Jr. She led the U.S. contingent at a global business conference and even her speech was broadcasted live by various television stations.

Interestingly, it is not the first instance when President Trump’s sons have raised ethical concerns over their promotional visits. Last year only, Donald Trump’s sons inaugurated a Trump-branded golf club in Dubai. The two brothers are now official in-charge to lead the Trump Organization.

Trump Jr. has planned his sprawling building in the satellite city of India, Gurgaon. The people who are ready to invest huge sum into this can expect to move into their swanky homes sometime in 2023. To run his business in India, Trump Jr. has licensing agreements with all its Indian business partners. India holds out to be the brand’s largest market outside the United States. In Pune, a luxury complex is already operational. The expected price of apartments in the Trump Towers complex in Gurgaon runs between $775,000 and $1.5 million.
