The U.S. said on Friday it would withdraw one of its diplomats from New Delhi at India's request after Washington effectively expelled Khobragade, the Indian envoy at the centre of a dispute between the allies. Khobragade, 39, who was India's deputy consul-general in New York, was arrested in December on charges of visa fraud and lying to U.S. authorities about what she paid her housekeeper. Khobragade's arrest and subsequent strip-search enraged New Delhi, led to protests and dealt a serious blow to U.S. efforts to strengthen ties with India. REUTERS/Anindito Mukherjee</p>
