Truth of Indian consul general in visa fraud case.
Fourth, as to Ms. Khobragade’s arrest by State Department agents, this is a prosecutor’s office in charge of prosecution, not the arrest or custody, of the defendant, and therefore those questions may be better referred to other agencies. I will address these issues based on the facts as I understand them. Ms. Khobragade was accorded courtesies well beyond what other defendants, most of whom are American citizens, are accorded. She was not, as has been incorrectly reported, arrested in front of her children. The agents arrested her in the most discreet way possible, and unlike most defendants, she was not then handcuffed or restrained. In fact, the arresting officers did not even seize her phone as they normally would have. Instead, they offered her the opportunity to make numerous calls to arrange personal matters and contact whomever she needed, including allowing her to arrange for child care. This lasted approximately two hours. Because it was cold outside, the agents let her make those calls from their car and even brought her coffee and offered to get her food. It is true that she was fully searched by a female Deputy Marshal — in a private setting — when she was brought into the U.S. Marshals’ custody, but this is standard practice for every defendant, rich or poor, American or not, in order to make sure that no prisoner keeps anything on his person that could harm anyone, including himself. This is in the interests of everyone’s safety.
Fifth, as has been reported, the victim’s family has been brought to the United States. As also has been reported, legal process was started in India against the victim, attempting to silence her, and attempts were made to compel her to return to India. Further, the Victim’s family reportedly was confronted in numerous ways regarding this case. Speculation about why the family was brought here has been rampant and incorrect. Some focus should perhaps be put on why it was necessary to evacuate the family and what actions were taken in India vis-à-vis them. This Office and the Justice Department are compelled to make sure that victims, witnesses and their families are safe and secure while cases are pending.
Finally, this Office’s sole motivation in this case, as in all cases, is to uphold the rule of law, protect victims, and hold accountable anyone who breaks the law – no matter what their societal status and no matter how powerful, rich or connected they are.

  1. Why the barricade put before U.S. embassy was removed by Indian authority as act of U.S. Government was justified and humanitarian? Whether Indian Government ascertained that the charges framed against its wrongdoer diplomat were wrong. Why security risk was increased without well considering the consequent of its actions. If the allegation of Indian Government will prove wrong and the act of U.S. if proved justified then whether Indian Government will apologize with its U.S. Counter parts. Whether it is necessary to give political look to each thing. It may be few countries may be strict law abider and strictly pursue the path of rule of law as going on in the united state where public functionaries are too much cooperative to the Indian maid without being influenced with the position and post of Indian diplomat.

  2. Hon'ble friend- Today on 16th page of Amar Ujala Hindi daily ,a news item published with the title that video of strip search of Devyaani Khobhara Gade is forged. This was told by spokesperson of external affairs department Meri Harph.She told the media persons that the video circulated at social networking sites as strip search of Indian diplomat Devyaani Khobhragade ,that is not video footage of Khobragade.That video footage is of a lady interrogated by officers of law enforcement department. According to her circulated video footage is forged, instigating and dangerous.

  3. Who tried to send the wrong message that Indian consul general was strip searched? Some one wants to create the ditch in brotherly relation between the two countries. Whether wrongdoers can go up to any extent in order to protect their selfish motives as is going on in this country. Why the lady diplomat didn't tell the truth that she was not humiliated by the U.S. Officials.
