They are heavy handed Manoj...But in some ways I think ordinary Indians should rejoice.

The diplomat women came from poor family too. I don't think the concept of rich and poor comes in to play in this scenario. The maid seem to have asked for the low paying job a quiet number of times before finally getting it.

Hmm. Seems Devyani Khobragade has a habit of lying & is wealthy.

According to the Ardash Probe Panel investigating her: "...she furnished false information to own a flat in the cooperative housing society...She had falsely claimed that she did not own a flat anywhere else at the time of her application for Adarsh membership"

"Her Income tax discloses that she is a well-to-do person since she owns agricultural land, flats in Aurangabad, Pune, Delhi, Thane and investments of large amounts." (The Indian Express)

And this is "the third instance where maids working for diplomats at the Indian Consulate General in New York have complained against their employers" (dnaindia)

How did a "mid-level consular officer (and not a diplomat)" acquire so much on her modest salary? I am curious why folks seem to be siding with her and not the victim in the case. As one commentator put it: "The US warned the Indian embassy to rectify this issue and this warning was ignored. Only then was the junior staff arrested and processed using standard operating procedures."

Perhaps more attention should be made to preserving & developing the relationship between the US and India than worrying about "honor" being "outraged" and going out on a diplomatic limb to "restore dignity" for this woman...But what do I know

Hmmm, looks like she is not as innocent as her friends here try to lead us to believe.

@ mangey - Deputy Counsel General in NY consulate. Do you know what it means ?
Yes, it means she IS NOT a diplomat with immunity.
I'm just here for the money

Hmmm,

if you can't hire a domestic helper at the prevailing or legal minimum wage then don't hire ...
