Devyani returning with full diplomatic immunity: Father

New Delhi, Jan 10 : Uttam Khobragade Friday said his daughter, Indian diplomat Devyani Khobragade, is "returning to India with full diplomatic immunity".

"It is only because of the entire Indian government's effort, my daughter is returning to India with full diplomatic immunity," Uttam Khobragade told media persons.

Devyani Khobragade was formally indicted by a US grand jury and asked to leave the US.

She is on her way back home, nearly a month after her arrest and strip search for alleged visa fraud.

"Our family has gone through a bad phase during this time and it will be a very important day for our entire family, as we will re-unite once again," Uttam Khobragade said.

He said that "one thing is clear that if the Indian government comes together against any issue, justice is inevitable".

Khobragade's handcuffing and strip search Dec 12 for alleged visa fraud and underpaying her child's nanny, Sangeeta Richard, sparked protests in India. During the time of her arrest, Devyani was India's deputy consul general in New York.
