Federal prosecutors have suggested that they plan to seek another indictment against an Indian diplomat who was arrested and strip-searched but had charges against her dismissed by a judge.
Attorney Daniel Arshack said in papers filed on Tuesday in Manhattan federal court charges and arrest warrants should be dismissed, saying Devyani Khobragade was protected by diplomatic immunity since she was charged last month.
Devyani Khobragade is charged with visa fraud and making false statements after she allegedly lied on a visa application for her nanny.
Protests, which included a nearly naked man wearing a Barack Obama mask, caused safety concerns at the U.S. Embassy where demonstrators were irate over the arrest and strip search of a an Indian diplomat in New York.
Devyani Khobragade is accused of paying her full-time babysitter just a few dollars an hour and lying on a visa application.
