An Indian diplomat whose arrest in the US sparked protests from India has been formally indicted by a US grand jury.

However, prosecutors says Devyani Khobragade had also been granted immunity and that US officials had asked her to leave the country.

Prosecutors initially said she had already left but were later told by her lawyer that she was still in the US.

Khobragade was detained on charges of visa fraud and of underpaying her housekeeper in New York last month.
