How does one create aiAmbientOcclusion node in maya using python

I tried

import mtoa.utils as mutils

mutils.createLocator('aiAmbientOcclusion')

But it does not completely work. While a group node with name gets created ( see image ) it is not visible in hypershade ( which works when clicked from within hypershade )

How does one create such a node completely using python ?
