A top diplomat at Indias consulate in Manhattan who lobbies for womens rights has been busted by the feds after allegedly mistreating her female nanny.
Devyani Khobragade, Indias 39-year-old deputy consul general for political, economic, commercial and womens affairs, was busted Thursday for allegedly helping to submit fake documents to the US State Department saying she was paying the woman $4,500 per month when, in reality, the caregiver received only $573 monthly, or a measly $3.31 an hour.
In an April interview with The Indian Panorama, a weekly Manhattan-based newspaper, Khobragade claimed that shes a strong advocate for underprivileged womens rights.
She added that she hoped someday to persuade the US government to make it easier for Indian nationals to apply for work visas.
We are trying to safeguard the interests of Indians who are highly specialized and skilled by increasing the number of [non-immigrant] applications that can be accepted from Indian applicants, said Khobragade, who is married to a philosophy professor and has two young daughters.
Khobragade hired her employee, an Indian national, in November 2012 and used her as a babysitter and housekeeper at her Manhattan home until June.
The diplomat is accused of telling the woman to lie on her visa application to get to the United States and say she was going to be paid the higher amount.
Then, Khobragade allegedly had the woman sign a second, under-the-radar contract that noted the nannys monthly salary including overtime the much smaller amount.

That is better than the rate she would be paid back home in India serving as a nanny but since it is Manhattan, I guess she gets extra as oversea perks. The money she earns can easily feed many members of her family back home in India and I guess the American enforcement officers have just shattered her rice bowl. But her employer like a typical Indian employer declared that income to evade INCOME TAX for herself. Now her maid has no money to remit home like the OFW.

Another stinky uncivilized Indian. I hope they burned the gloves they used for the cavity search! Biohazard!
