A new tough-talking India upped the ante against the US Tuesday and sought an "unconditional apology" over the arrest and humiliating strip-search of its ranking diplomat Devyani Khobragade in New York. Attorney Daniel Arshack says his client should never have been charged. India also took a slew of steps to pare down the privileges of American diplomats in a retaliatory measure. Describing the treatment of Khobragade as "barbaric and despicable", India sent a formal communication to the US asking its diplomats in the embassy and four consulates to surrender their Diplomatic Identity Cards issued to them and their families.
