Even as diplomat Devyani Khobragade was on her way back to India on Friday, the Indian Government sought the expulsion of an American diplomat of similar rank from Delhi. India asked the United States to withdraw an officer from its New Delhi embassy, blaming him for the events leading up to Khobragade's arrest and subsequent public humilation in New York in December last year. Khobragade's late night flight Thursday followed dramatic developments over 48 hours that saw hardball negotiations between India and the United States, ending in an agreement whereby Devyani Khobragade left the country, armed with full diplomatic immunity from visa fraud charges.
