India asks U.S. embassy in New Delhi to withdraw a diplomat
Jan 10 2014 , New Delhi
An Indian government official said the U.S. diplomat was involved in the case relating to Devyani Khobragade, the New York-based Indian consular official, that has strained ties between the two countries.
Khobragade was flying home on Friday from the United States after a deal in which she was indicted for visa fraud and lying about how much she paid her housekeeper, but allowed to leave because of diplomatic immunity.
"We called the US mission to withdraw an officer of similar rank of Devyani as reciprocal action," the government official said.
