Devyani gets exclusion from personal appearance

Indian diplomat Devyani Khobragade has been granted personal exemption in the alleged visa fraud case. Last week she was given accreditation to the country's Permanent Mission by United Nations  to allow diplomatic immunity from the US Law.

However the State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki said, "Possessing UN immunity doesn't mean, the criminal charges will be erased. The immunity does not apply in the ongoing case." Devyani was arrested on December 12th on the charges that she paid her domestic help Sangeeta Richard a fraction of American minimum wages and lied on the woman's visa application  by the New York police while she was dropping her kid at school. Later she was given bail on a $250,000 bond.
