News Delhi, Jun 23: After the allegations of mistreatment of domestic help, faced by the Indian Consul General in New York Prabhu Dayal, the government ordered a review of the policy of sending domestic help abroad.

This comes after Indian government decided to back Mr Dayal saying the allegations levelled against him are motivated and baseless and voiced concern over Indian diplomats being targeted in the US.

Vishnu Prakash, External Affairs Ministry spokesperson said,"We are disappointed and surprised at the allegations against Consul General (CG) of India in New York, Mr Prabhu Dayal, by his former employee, which appear to be motivated and baseless."

He said Mr Dayal had "impeccable personal and professional integrity" and India was "disappointed and deeply concerned that Indian diplomats and their family members should be targetted in such a manner in a friendly country like the US."

"The treatment being meted out to Indian diplomats or their family members, has resulted in negative public perceptions in India with attendant implications," he said.
