Shuja Nawaz, director of the South Asia Center, is quoted by BBC World News on India’s outrage over the arrest of diplomat Devyani Khobragade in New York:
Ms Khobragade is part of India’s foreign service, said Shuja Nawaz, director of the South Asia Center at the Atlantic Council in Washington. She belongs to the mid-level part of the bureaucracy, not the top.
Yet the arrest of Ms Khobragade has become a sore point between the US and India. “It’s a symbolic issue of the way she was treated,” he said.
