Maid in Manhattan Case: U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, the Man Who Makes Embassy Row Tremble. Interesting that the Indians have their knickers in a knot and have spread all kinds of vicious rumors and untruths about this case, but nothing is said about whether or not the consular official (who did not have full immunity, but shouldn’t have been breaking the law in the first place) did or didn’t do what she was accused of doing – only that her position and class entitled her to ‘special’ treatment. Hooray for Preet Bharara!

    Exactly. I read that the primary reason for the outrage is that, in India, the kind of treatment she received upon and after arrest is reserved for only the poorest of India’s citizens. So, maybe she did it, but she shouldn’t be arrested, strip searched, or put through anything else that would normally be a part of criminal justice procedure.

      True, but she was in New York, and if you read the US Attorney’s report on the case, you’ll see that she received the same treatment any other arrested person in this country would receive. That the Indians would be in a snit because we refuse to recognize her Brahmin status is unbelievable, but unfortunately completely in character.

        Oh I agree completely! That’s what has me so infuriated with the Indian government and people. That they should reserve a particular treatment for one lowly group of people, and expect everyone else to adhere to that. Not that there’s never been a class system in the US. I actually wonder if this would’ve happened the same, had she been a British diplomat.
