Khobragade's paperwork under review: US

The US is reviewing the paperwork it received from the United Nations about the diplomatic accreditation of senior Indian diplomat Devyani Khobragade arrested early this month on visa fraud charges, an American official has said.

"We received the paperwork from the United Nations late on Friday. It is under review," a State Department spokesperson told PTI.

The spokesperson, however, refused to divulge any detail about the time the State Department would take to review the paperwork or if the entire paperwork was in order and when Khobragade would receive her identity card.

Khobragade, who was Deputy Consul General at the Indian Consulate in New York, was arrested on December 12 after a New York court issued arrest warrant against her on charges of visa fraud.

India has contested her arrest and subsequent treatment.

She was later released on a bail bond of USD 250,000 and she was asked to submit her diplomatic passport by the New York Court.

Soon thereafter, Khobragade was transferred by the Indian Government to its Permanent Mission to the UN so that she gets full diplomatic immunity.

Her transfer has been accepted by the United Nations, which sent the necessary paperwork to the US State Department for issuing the identity card that would grant her the full diplomatic immunity.
