Mumbai, Jan.14, ANI | 9 months ago

Devyani Khobragade, who was arrested last December in the United States on charges of visa fraud, on Tuesday returned to Mumbai.

Devyani who was accompanied by her father Uttam Khobragade, said, "I am very happy to come home...thank you for all your support,"

"I want to thank all who have given me so much of love...I am very happy to come to my city Mumbai," she added.

Devyani Khobragade, 39, who was India's deputy consul-general in New York, was arrested in December on charges of visa fraud and lying to U.S. authorities on what she paid her housekeeper. Khobragade's arrest and strip-search provoked protests in India and dealt a serious blow to U.S.-India ties.

On Friday, Khobragade returned to India following a deal that let her leave the United States after being indicted by a federal grand jury.

India, too, expelled a U.S. diplomat in retaliation against the arrest, humiliation and expulsion of Khobragade.

India ordered an unnamed American diplomat of the U.S. embassy in New Delhi to leave within 48 hours. The diplomat is at the same rank as Khobragade and is believed to be deeply involved in manipulating the case against Khobragade.
