Three Israeli diplomats were booked for slapping and thrashing an immigration official at the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) airport here, police said Sunday.

A case under section 186 (obstructing public servant in discharge of public functions) and 332 (voluntarily causing hurt to deter public servant from his duty) of the Indian Penal Code was registered against the three Israeli diplomats, who enjoy diplomatic immunity, said a senior police officer.

Police said immigration official Somveer was Saturday manhandled by the three young diplomats, who were on their way to Kathmandu, after they got angry over a delay in immigration formalities. 

One of the diplomat also slapped Somveer and the entire incident was recorded on CCTV cameras installed on the premises.

Deputy Commissioner of Police I.M. Haider told IANS that the Israeli Embassy has been informed about the case.
