Looks like that the maid is a spy. consider this facts.
1. Her parents worked in the US embassy.
2. When India withdrew the maid's passport and declared her as absconded, she was not arrested by the authorities, even thouh they knew her
3. Her husband and 2 kids were secretively given visa in a hurry and flown away to NY 2 days before the arrest of the diplomat. This clearly
establishes that the entire incident is completely planned to the Tee. The argument that it is standard procedure is complete BS
4. There was a call from an anonymous source blackmailing the Indian diplomat for the maid's regular passport and a huge sum of money. Even when the
diplomat lodged a complaint with the local police, there was no action taken by the US authorities. If our diplomat had succumbed to the blackmail,
she herself would have been employed by the US as a spy potentially.
Looks like the US state department wanted the spy story to not leak out and they tried to deflect this in a different direction by arresting and
humiliating Shri. Khobragade.
I think India should reciprocate exacly in kind (if they manage to get a couple of US diplomats on an illegal acts). If not, US will continue with
these attrocities against Indian institutions, because there is no fear of retaliation.

In a limited sense, the transgressions of US minimum wages law by Khobragade will draw the usual Indian liberal nonsense: if we are in contravention
of their law, we are the guilty party. Worse, some of us will also express sneaking admiration for the US's ability to enforce its own law, as opposed
to our own inability - or systemic unwillingness - to enforce ours. Not only is this a naïve view, but bull. Hear what Khobragade had to say about
her arrest, and judge for yourself if this is the right way to deal with a brech of minimum wages law. The Indian Express, quoting from her email to
colleagues, has this Indian Foreign Service (IFS) officer saying this about her horrifying experience. “I must admit that I broke down many times as
the indignities of repeated handcuffing, stripping and cavity searches, swabbing, hold up with common criminals and drug addicts were all being
imposed upon me despite my incessant assertions of immunity.”

It is critical that India should not close the chapter on the Khobragade affair for a few conciliatory noises. We have to bare our fangs and show some
muscle. The chances are the US will do a deal and extract concessions from the UPA government to let Khobragade off the hook. And the Indian side will
bow to this blackmail and claim their hard stance has paid off and declare victory. I hope this story does not play out. There are times when we have
to show we are Indians, and this is one of those times. The only right response to the Khobragade insult is to treat Americans the same way they treat
our kind: catch hold of a technical violator of Indian law, do some handcuffing and "cavity searches" on some of the men arrested, and then bargain
about Khobragade. At the very least, we should target Preet Bharara for humiliating an Indian diplomat and make sure he never enters this country
