INDIA ASKS US TO REMOVE EMBASSY OFFICER

Demand adds twist to row over arrest of Indian consular officer indicted for visa fraud but allowed to leave US.
India has asked the United States to withdraw an embassy employee in a fresh act of retaliation just as a dispute over the arrest of an Indian diplomat in New York appeared to be drawing to a close.
Relations between the two governments have been in crisis since December 12 when Devyani Khobragade(photo), a senior Indian consulate employee, was arrested for alleged visa fraud and making false statements relating to the employment of a domestic servant. 
On Friday, Khobragade arrived in the Indian capital New Delhi after leaving the US overnight. 
She was charged in a New York court on Thursday, but was granted full diplomatic immunity by the US shortly beforehand, which 
allowed her to return home on Friday. 
The decision to risk escalating the row again by demanding the withdrawal of a US embassy officer in New Delhi came as a surprise.
