A US grand jury has re-indicted an Indian diplomat whose arrest strained US-India relations.

A US grand jury has re-indicted an Indian diplomat whose arrest
strained US-India relations.
Devyani Khobragade is accused of
visa fraud and underpaying her housekeeper, lawyers in New York said.
It comes two
days after a US judge threw out virtually identical charges on the grounds that
Ms Khobragade had diplomatic immunity.
However,
that ruling left open the possibility that prosecutors could bring a new
indictment.
Ms
Khobragade has always denied any wrongdoing.
Her lawyer,
Daniel Arshack, had no immediate comment on Friday.
Ms
Khobragade was detained in New York in December on suspicion of visa fraud and
making false statements, after being accused of paying her Indian maid below
the US minimum wage.
The
Indian government said it was “shocked and appalled” at the manner of
her arrest, and ordered a series of diplomatic reprisals against the US,
including the withdrawal of a US diplomat from India.
Ms
Khobragade returned to India in January after she was indicted on criminal
charges and India refused to waive her immunity.
After the charges were dropped, she said through her
lawyer that she felt the rule of law had prevailed.
Now we public spirited
people felt that there is no compromise with the rule of law in Human Rights
champion country like U.S.A. We expect that Indian maid belonged to poor and
downtrodden section will get justice which was not possible in her own country.
In India several public spirited people are facing fabricated trial instituted
on the basis of forged documents and concocted story and on complaint the
accountable functionaries take the recourse of independence of judiciary.
 
Her father, Uttam Khobragade, said at the time:
“This is the happiest moment of our lives.”
The real pleasure is in following the path of truth and
honesty which is stable and supreme among all kind of pleasures. Even
prosecutions will not cause you troublesome if the path of Righteousness is
followed by you . This is my personal experience . Because multiple conspiracy
with illegal prosecutions in order to teach me lesson  didn’t disturb me even for a moment.

  2. Most interesting headline from the News diary of Amar Ujala daily-Saturday, 15-March-2014 ,Dismissal of case against Devyani Khobhragade U.S.A. is worried.
    According to Hindi daily-Ministry of External Affairs of U.S.A. expressed resentment over the dismissal of case against Indian consul Devyani Khobhragade The relation between two countries had become non-cordial because of frisking of Indian Consul by wearing out of clothes in Newyork . American Judge categorically stated in its order that during the arrest ,she had privileges so her prosecution can't proceed. But paper didn't mention it that she can be charged for under paying the house keeper and visa-irregularity if prosecution desires by recharging. Now wrongdoer diplomat was re-indicted as required by law.
