Senior diplomat Devyani Khobragade, who returned to India last week after being indicted for visa fraud in the United States, arrived in Mumbai on Tuesday.

“I am thankful to my city Mumbai for the love and support,” Ms. Khobragade told reporters at the airport with folded hands.

Ms. Khobragade was granted full diplomatic immunity and returned to India on the day a jury indicted her for visa fraud in the United States. She has not been given a posting so far.

RPI(A) workers had gathered at the airport to welcome her.

Ms. Khobragade, the daughter of retired IAS officer Uttam Khobragade, is expected to stay at her parents home in Versova for a few days.
