New Delhi: India on Wednesday asserted that law of the land will prevail in the alleged rape case involving a French consulate official and rejected any scope of "parallel" investigation in the backdrop of reports that France was doing its own investigation into the case.
"The question of carrying out a parallel investigation does not arise. The law of the land will prevail. He (the French official) has no immunity," External Affairs Minister SM Krishna said.
He was asked about the reports that France was on it own investigating the allegations of rape of a three-year-old girl by her father and French consulate official Pascal Mazurier in Bangalore. Mazurier has been arrested by Bangalore police on Tuesday.
