Devyani Khobragade gets warm welcome on arrival in Mumbai
Mumbai, Jan 14 : Hundreds of Republican Party of India-A activists gave a rousing welcome to Indian diplomat Devyani Khobragade who arrived in her home city here Tuesday afternoon.
Khobragade, 39, who was at the centre of a diplomatic row between India and US after American authorities charged her with visa fraud last month, wore a sari and appeared relaxed and cheerful as she stepped out of the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport's domestic terminal.
The assembled activists shouted slogans in her support and condemned the US for the recent incidents.
"I thank the people of Mumbai for their love and support to me," she said outside with her hands folded in a namaste, after nearly a month long ordeal in which her family, including father, retired senior bureaucrat Uttam Khobragade fully supported her.
Khobragade had reached New Delhi last Friday from the US after she was publicly arrested and later indicted by a jury for an alleged visa fraud.
Since she has not yet been given any posting so far, Khobragade is likely to spend time with her family in their Mumbai suburban home for the next few days.
