CNN: Judge dismisses charges against Indian diplomat

Devyani KhobragadeA federal judge has granted Indian diplomat Devyani Khobragade motion to dismiss charges against her that sparked an international uproar and created tensions between the United States and India, reports CNN.

Khobragade was arrested in New York in December and charged with lying on her visa about how much she was paying her housekeeper, Sangeeta Richard.

Khobragade asked that the charges be dismissed claiming immunity.

“We are heartened that the court agreed with our legal analysis and rejected the prosecution’s arguments by dismissing the case,”  said Khobragade’s attorney Daniel Arshack.

Prosecutors suggested they could refile charges. You can read more about that on CNN.
