India diplomat Devyani Khobragade indicted in US visa row

An Indian diplomat whose arrest in the US sparked protests from India has been formally indicted by a US grand jury.

However, prosecutors said that Devyani Khobragade, 39, had also been granted immunity and that US officials had asked her to leave the country.

Ms Khobragade was detained on charges of visa fraud and of underpaying her housekeeper in New York last month.
