Indian Diplomat Booted From U.S.

Devyani Khobragade, the Indian deputy consul whose arrest and strip-search for visa fraud set off a diplomatic row between the U.S. and India flew home Friday after being ordered to leave for refusing to waive her diplomatic immunity. In a huff, Indian authorities called her arrest and strip-search “barbaric” and proceeded to retailiate by removing security barriers from the U.S. Embassy in New Delhi along with other actions. A grand jury found that Khobragade had negotiated paying her maid just $3.33 an hour, and in reality only paid her less than $2 an hour, and seized her passport.
