Kuwaiti police arrested a military officer who used his position to rape Asian maids and threatening them of deportation if they report the crime, a newspaper in the Gulf emirate reported on Wednesday.
Police seized the officer after a Sri Lankan woman told them he stopped her near a school where she works and took her to his apartment, where he raped her, Alanba Arabic language daily said.
“She said he told her he would take her to the police centre because she is absconding…but he took her to his flat,” the paper said.
“The officer confessed that he was targeting absconding Asian workers…two other Asian women who were summoned by the police said he raped them.”
The paper quoted police as saying the officer would be subject to more interrogation to know the exact number of the victims he raped at the apartment that he had rented for this purpose a few months ago.
