Delhi withdraws US consular IDs
(12-17 19:14)

India announced a series of reprisals against the US over a diplomat's arrest in New York, including pulling identity cards for US consular officials in the country, foreign ministry sources said.
“We have ordered the withdrawal of all ID cards that are issued by the Ministry of External Affairs to the officials at the US consulates across India,'' a ministry source told AFP on condition of anonymity.
India’s deputy consul in New York, Devyani Khobragade was charged last week in the US with making false statements and visa fraud.
Prosecutors in New York say Khobragade claimed the Indian worker who was her domestic helper would get US$4,500 per month, but was paid below the minimum wage.
