Diplomat Arrest Strains U.S.-India Relations

India Diplomat

Uttam Khobragade, father of Devyani Khobragade, who served as India’s deputy consul general in New York, talks to press after meeting his daughter after her arrival at the Indira Gandhi International airport in New Delhi, India, Friday, Jan. 10, 2014. Devyani Khobragade was allowed to fly home to India on Friday after being indicted by a U.S. federal grand jury. In retaliation to the diplomatic dispute touched off by the arrest and strip search of Khobragade in New York, India has asked the United States on Friday to withdraw a diplomat from the U.S. Embassy in New Delhi.
