In further trouble for the Bahrain's Consul General here, a second case has been registered against him for allegedly abusing and threatening the Manager of the housing society where he stays.

A case has been filed against the envoy, Mohammed Abdulaziz Al Khaja, on a complaint by the Manager of the housing society on Napean Sea Road in south Mumbai, Krishna Prakash, Additional Commissioner of Police, told PTI here today.

Khaja stays on the fourth floor of the society building. The Manager, a woman, had early this month lodged a police complaint accusing Khaja of molesting her.

According to the latest complaint, the Bahraini diplomat came to the society office on Thursday and was talking to its Chairman when he reportedly pointed a finger at the Manager, abused and threatened to kill her.

The 49-year-old victim had earlier said Khaja lost his cool after one of the elevators of the building was shut for repairs on December 9.

He was slamming the door of the elevator when she saw him and requested him to maintain his cool. However, Khaja did not stop and ransacked the office in a fit of rage, police said, quoting the complainant.

The victim alleged that Khaja touched her and used abusive language during the commotion. She approached the Malabar Hill Police which conducted a preliminary inquiry and registered a complaint.

However, police did not arrest the envoy as he enjoys diplomatic immunity.

Police said Khaja allegedly tried to create ruckus again on December 20 in the building, where he has been staying for the last five years.
