Indian diplomat indicted on charges of visa fraud, false statements
Karen DeYoungAn Indian diplomat whose arrest sent U.S.-India relations into a tailspin was indicted by a federal grand jury in New York on Thursday on charges of visa fraud and making false statements regarding the employment of a domestic worker.
The indictment, however, came just hours after the State Department moved to resolve the case in a way that allowed Devyani Khobragade, India’s deputy consul general in New York, to leave the country without facing the allegations in court. Indian officials said late Thursday that Khobragade was airborne and would arrive in India early Saturday morning.
