Devyani case: Emails reveal US had agreed to deport Sangeetha
New Delhi, Jan 6: The US government had initially agreed to deport Devyani's domestic help Sangeeta Richard to India, reveals emails exchanged between Indian diplomat Devyani Khobragade and the US state department wing. The emails obtained by Times Now says that the US had asked authorities to facilitate deportation of Sangeetha.

Presently, Sangeetha and her family are in the protection of the US Department of Home Land security.

Meanwhile, Indian government might shut the American Community Support Association (ACSA), which is the American embassy club in New Delhi, as part of measures to put pressure on the US in the Devyani case. India in last month has taken an array of steps to pressurise the US in the case which has given rise to a diplomatic row between the countries.

Reportedly, the US will be given deadline of 10 days which will also mean that it now has to decide if it will issue a G1 visa giving immunity to Khobragade or face more Indian action to bring diplomatic protocol strictly at par with other countries. The US is yet to grant the G1 visa to Khobragade.

Earlier, India had cancelled additional privilages given ti US diplomats in India and had cancelled their ID cards.
