Man from India was working as an employee of a US military contractor in Afghanistan. (Doing what?) He is not a US citizen. He sexually assaulted an American woman on the military base: “working as an employee of a U.S. military contractor on Operating Base Fenty, Afghanistan, [Lokesh] Naik allegedly entered the room of a 24-year-old U.S. national and sexually assaulted her by force.” What company hired this man? They don’t tell us. It is possible that it is Security and Intelligence Services, as someone by that name works for it. However, there are over 100 people with the name Lokesh Naik on linked in alone, so we can’t make any assumptions. And, we do not know if SIS company works in Afghanistan or not: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Security_and_Intelligence_Services_(India)
Note this wasn’t what we were looking for on the justice department web site, but there it was – the reality of the alleged “model minority“. Maybe he will learn that the US is not India – yet. “What’s Really Behind India’s Rape Crisis: India and China both have a surplus of males, but only one country has an out-of-control rape epidemic“, by Shaan Khan Updated Jul. 12, 2017, Mar. 25, 2016, The Daily Beast: https://archive.li/fQA1J Will Trump pardon him to make India’s Modi and Trump’s Republican Hindu coalition friends proud?

As can be seen below the Justice Dept news release, there are over 2000 third country nationals (TCN) working in Afghanistan, mostly as subcontractors-service contractors to prime US Department of Defense contractors.

If they put the Asian-Indian workers in security then that might help India’s male overpopulation.

An important read because it explains the origins of the Americans who have died doing security in Iraq Afghanistan. Also, the difficulties of obtaining information/data:

So there are mutual interests that Iran and Afghanistan share; water rights, commerce. We welcome the recent economic treaty between Iran, Afghanistan and India the Chabahar port. We think this offers Afghanistan economic alternatives to going through Pakistan…” Excerpt from testimony: https://rs.nato.int/news-center/transcripts/senate-armed-services-committee-the-situation-in-afghanistan-full-transcript.aspx
