Indian Diplomat Arrested
Devyani Kobragade, India's deputy consul general, was arrested on Thursday as she dropped her daughter off at school. Apparently, she submitted false documents to get a work visa for a female housekeeper. Details are sparse, but Indian society and the government in New Delhi are collectively outraged at the arrest.

Yeah, its pretty interesting that none of the uproar in india has to do with the absurd wages she was paying her housekeeper.
@curtis yea...and i don't know the intimate details, but it sounds like she was just trying to help out an employee. what do you think could be the source of all the outrage?
Well she was paying about $3 bucks an hour. Way less than half of minimum wage so she wasn't really helping if you ask me!
Haha yeah, though I guess by Indian standards that would've been ok, can't live on that in NY
