KABUL: Indian Defence Attache in Kabul Brigadier SK Narain has reportedly been expelled from Afghanistan over charges of raping an Afghan girl, local media reported.

Brigadier SK Narain was posted as defense attache in the Indian Embassy in Kabul.

The Afghan girl he raped had reportedly approached the Indian Embassy earlier to obtain a scholarship. She was later raped on the premises.

Taking urgent notice of the incident, the Afghanistan government expelled the Indian Army officer from the country immediately. However, no criminal proceedings have been initiated against the accused Indian official.

A few weeks ago 3 Indian Army soldiers also raped an Indian girl while on a moving train. Indian Army soldiers have also regularly been accused of committing mass rape in Indian-occupied Kashmir, and have also been involved in incidents of rape while on deputation at UN missions abroad.

New Delhi, the nation’s capital, also has one of the highest number of reported rape cases in the world.

Similarly, on June 18, two Indian cricket officials were arrested on the charge of raping a Zimbabwean woman.
