Indian diplomat Debjani Khobragade has been accused to the fraud charge by the U.S. Court, and an arrest warrant has been issued against her. Manhattan Federal Court has newly started this case against the Indian diplomat. Debjani has been charged for visa fraud and for giving false information of her maid’s salary in visa application. However, the same charge has been issued just after a court in New York dismissed the charge against her showing diplomatic immunities.

India has expressed disappointment at this step of America. Indian government spokesman Syed Akbaruddin said that both countries were trying to establish a strategic relation between New Delhi and Washington and such decision will have a negative impact on it.

Debjani was the Deputy Consular of Indian Consulate office in New York. Before that she was being caught and was searched nude regarding visa scandal and irregularities in payment of her maid. And for this reason, there is created a threat between the relations of India-America.

This disputed Indian diplomat woman left America in January, and currently she is working at the foreign ministry in New Delhi.
