Devyani Khobragade is a diplomat representing India and therefore represents the nation. Handcuffing her, submitting her to searches that violate her privacy and treating her like a common criminal in a case regarding a labour law violation despite her diplomatic immunity is indefensible. India has been right in raising the ante against the US. If the two countries are indeed on friendly terms, the treatment of a diplomat in this manner cannot be condoned and merits this level of outrage.
Diplomats (no matter of his or her nationality) is not bound by the Law of other nation where he or she is working.Arresting and putting a diplomat in some foreign country is not only going against Di plomatic Immunity Law and Geneva Pact but also a great insult to the nation??Did the US authorities asked for permission from India Government before police action on her??
