Devyani Khobragade incident: What's your take?

Here's an overview of the incident from what I've read so far...

DK is a mid-level consular officer, who get's paid ~$6-7k a month. She hired a nanny for ~$550-600K a month + some bonus. On US visa papers, she noted $4500 a month. She is being charged with human exploitation and human trafficking.

Indian officials (and Indian civilians) are enraged that an Indian diplomat is being tried in US courts. They are saying she should be granted diplomatic immunity. They are saying that the US officials mistreated her after the arrest, which they deny.

What's your take?

I don't know what the problem is... that the maid has. Yes, it is wrong to say one thing in the form and do another thing in real... but 500 a month with all karcha-paani included is a fantastic offer. Just imagine that she will be sending this 500 to India every month... well if not all, at least 400. Imagine her family in India... they will be living life like royals.

So why would the maid bring the kulhadi down hard on her own feet Jaroor dal mein kuch kala hai...

Yaa but 2 things.

1. In diplomatic enclave LOCAL LAWS do not apply.
2. Was there coercion or was that what the nanny asked for?
3. How many hours per day?
4. HOW does it justify a STRIP SEARCH?
5. Yashwant Sinha wants "same sex" partners arrested (from US diplomats re: 377). What is the connection here?
6. Why same sex.. was DK given a BJ forcibly by a member of the same or similar sex?
7. HT wants a diplomat arrested "eye for an eye concept" just for shits and giggles.

Err.. with details as disjoint as this you want a reasonable opinion? Kallu.. ek peg mere ko bhi de naa!! Pliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis!!

Yashwant Sinha is a politician. He can say whatever he wants...that doesn't mean anything.

When officials (especially US officials) make an arrest, they ensure they have their ducks lined up. They know the charges and probably have sufficient evidence to take her to court. They can't make arrests based on a whim or ESP. They have a case.

Indians are thinking that this is a tu-tu-mein-mein ki ladai...which it's not.

Re: Devyani Khobragade incident: What's your take?

The point is THEY CANNOT.. that is what diplomatic immunity means. They do not have the juristiction. I am still seeing it unfold.. (just saw her she is hot.. err.. not hot as in heroine hot but errr CFAFB kinds).. and tell yaa there is more to this than it appears. So lets keep the discussion alive... okey!!

Re: Devyani Khobragade incident: What's your take?

it is not a criminal act, so she has diplomatic immunity. I think India is doing right by replying in kind.. we should arrest a few americans as well on some frivolous charges.

That Yashwant Sinha suggestion.. again you didn't read the whole thing Pelu bhai.. only recently SC banned gay sex in India, so American diplomat's same sex partner can be arrested under law.. I say lets do it.

Human trafficking and human exploitation IS a criminal act...in fact, these are VERY SERIOUS charges. She could do several years in US jail.

The nanny and her husband are witnesses against her. They probably have pressed charges against her...I don't know the whole story.

She is a high-profile diplomat. I'm sure US officials were well aware of what they were doing before they took this step. Yes, there may be ulterior games going on, but that's a totally different game. You still have to play by the rules, else you lose.

I had to edit some of your posts as we dont want Mayawati here in this thread.

You disappointed me,Krantikari is a good member and you calling him what not ?
