There is proverb in Tamil that reads ‘Arasan indru kolvaan, kadavul nindru kolvaan’ which refers to delayed justice.
Here is a case to prove the same in the case of Devyani. News coming in from within India proves that the Indian diplomat at USA is a fraud and have been cheating the government in different ways.
In a fresh blow to diplomat Devyani Khobragade, currently in the thick of controversy over her arrest in a alleged visa fraud in the US, was pulled up by the Adash judicial panel “for making a false statement” to become a member of the society.
Khobragade was allotted flat number 2301 spread over 1,076 square feet in Adarsh society. The judicial commission report stated her membership was approved though she was ineligible for the flat in Adarsh.
Her bureaucrat father, Uttam Khobragade, appeared before the commission during the inquiry while she was posted in the Indian embassy in Berlin. Having taken power of attorney from her, the senior IAS officer informed the panel that he had filled in the membership form of the society on her behalf.
The report mentioned the bureaucrat failed to mention the price of the flat even when both of them deposed before the panel members and they remained silent on this aspect.
Devyani mentioned her annual income to be around Rs 1.8 lakh in her application. However, the panel members accessed a copy of her ledger account of Adarsh society from April 1, 2008, to March 31, 2011, which shows that she made a total payment of Rs 1.10 crore. Ironically, both father and daughter had failed to reveal anything about the source of money for purchasing a flat.
Uttam Khobragade said when his daughter, an IFS officer, filed the application for a flat, she disclosed that she was already a member of another society. “When Adarsh society informed us of the allotment, we sold the earlier flat before making payment for the Adarsh flat. If the allotment is cancelled, we shall take back the refund.”
