FWIW: Foggy Bottom did advise the Indian Embassy, back in September, that one of their staff in NYC was under investigation and the reason of that investigation. The Indian authorities did nothing - it is not the first case from this consulate: this is the third one:

I agree that the treatment applied to her was harsh and the bureau of diplomatic security screwed up by letting the US Marshals take over her case. Foggy Bottom should have put pressure on the Indian Embassy by requesting a waiver for her diplomatic immunity (even as a junior diplomat) in situ or demand that she leaves the country thus it would have been a closed case between Foggy Bottom and the MEA of India.

Another piece of news: Her husband is a US citizen and as a rule from the Indian Govt, a diplomats spouse must take Indian citizenship. However, this has never been initiated.
