India says U.S. re-indictment of Indian diplomat "unnecessary"

English.news.cn   2014-03-15 18:11:44

NEW DELHI, March 15 (Xinhua) -- India Saturday strongly reacted to the second indictment against its diplomat Devyani Khobragade in the United States, saying it was an "unnecessary" step and any measure consequent to the decision will " unfortunately" impact upon efforts on both sides to India-U.S. strategic partnership.

Dashing hopes of a closure of the Devyani Khobragade affair, an American prosecutor Preet Bharara has secured a fresh indictment of the Indian diplomat at the center of a major India-U.S. diplomatic row three months ago.

Two days after a New York judge dismissed the visa fraud case against Khobragade, India's then consul general in New York, a U. S. grand jury Friday again indicted her on same criminal charges.

Khobragade, 38, was accused of fraud and was arrested before being expelled by the United States after being formally charged.
