Diplomat Devyani Khobragade arrives in Mumbai

January 14, 2014 17:31 IST

Senior diplomat Devyani Khobragade, who returned to India last week after being indicted for visa fraud in the United States, arrived in Mumbai on Tuesday.

"I am thankful to my city Mumbai for the love and support," Devyani told reporters at the airport with folded hands.

Devyani was granted full diplomatic immunity and returned to India on the day a jury indicted her for visa fraud in the United States. She has not been given a posting so far.

Republican Party of India (Athawale) workers had gathered at the airport to welcome her.

Devyani, the daughter of retired IAS officer Uttam Khobragade, is expected to stay at her parents home in Versova for a few days.

Recently, the Adarsh commission found her ineligible to own a flat in the controversial Adarsh housing society in Colaba.
