“A grand jury has returned a true bill today on a two-count criminal indictment of Devyani Khobragade, said the office of US prosecutor Preet Bharara in an announcement Friday.

Bharara’s office had charged the diplomat with visa fraud and making false statements in connection with the employment of her housekeeper Sangeeta Richard.

Khobragade, whose Dec 12 arrest and strip search on charges of visa fraud and underpaying her housekeeper had set off an India-US diplomatic row, returned to India Jan 9 after India refused to waive her then newly-acquired diplomatic immunity.

    India is a cesspool of corruption. Many Indian have counterfeit Indian Rupees that they use to buy luxury cars. Some bring these counterfeit Indian Rupees to the USA to buy US based businesses and products taking advantage of recession.

    More Indian diplomats must be arrested, at least, those who pick up white prostitutes from the streets of USA.
