The maid probably got greedy and decided to become an illegal immigrant. Things got out of hand when DV filed a police against her and the maid decided to go to a lawyer who created this human trafficking angle.
You are right, she had no expenses. but $450 in NYC? Just over $100 a week in NYC? How is she supposed to have any standard of living?
Anyway...let me step out before someone jumps on me saying egoistic Canadian.

What standard of living? All good standards of living were available free for her. She gets to watch TV on a big 65" TV... probably got her own bedroom... if she was the same size as DV then free hand-me-down clothes that would have been fresher than any she would have worn at her child-hood home. And all of this for free. Yes, a iPhone would have cost her some money... and the monthly plan must have taken $100 out of her 450. That leaves 350. Still a lot.

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

I think DK is meted out this treatment as a revenge...of a personal kind...or espionage kind. Many a politicians in US are brought down by exposing such scandals with proper timing....when Bush and his cronies were pursued by Eliot Spitzer, he went down the drain

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

Come to think of it, the UPA government could be deliberately scuttling the US Indian partnership to make it a tough job for the next government in power.

The Congress is a master at using the U.S. as a boogeyman to Indians.

Where were these people when Narendra Modi was denied a visa? Oh yes, they were the same people jumping with glee!

Its funny how the people rooting for this diplomat clapped with glee when N Modi was denied visa. Then the U.S was the paragon of their pseudo secular virtues and now the U.S. is the demon for troubling this diplomat for her crimes, whatever that might be.

Reality can be stranger than fiction.

In context of geopolitics, anything is possible and all angles must be suspected.

Sure and no one is stopping Devyani Khobra...from settling this by paying a hefty fine. As did the Davis guy .

Get a plea deal.... Plea guilty of lesser charges....Do some community services.....Pay a million $$ to maid and a million to US government.....

She does not go to Jail......


That's what rich people do .
