Saudi Arabia’s feared religious police seized an Indian private driver as he was raping the 11-year-old son of his employer at a shopping mall’s car park, a newspaper reported on Saturday.
Members of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice were on a routine patrol at the mall when they heard noise behind a car in the parking lot in Riyadh at night.
“As they came near that car, they found the Indian driver sodomising the boy…once the boy saw them, he burst into crying and told them the driver had been doing this for a long time under threats,” Sabq daily said.
Man held for claiming he is prophet
Saudi police arrested a local man after claiming he is a prophet and decided to send him to a psychiatry hospital for examination.
The man used a packed hall hosting a local festival in the northeastern town of Hafr Al Batin to address people and tell them he was their new prophet.
“Police received many phone calls about the man…they went to the place and arrested him….he would be sent to a psychiatry hospital for examination,” the Saudi Kabar Arabic language daily said.
