    The reason some people in India have been upset isn't because one of their citizens was treated like any other arrested person: it's because an upper class citizen was treated like any other arrested person.

    This sort of thing isn't supposed to happen if you're not, you know, one of those people.

      So long as you are happy for the school to be raided and those working there illegally arrested and charged then treated the same as an other person arrested there - where bail after formal remand (indictment in US terms) is extremely unlikely in cases where flight can reasonably be expected. Long periods of remand, possibly years, before trial are common in the overburdened Indian legal system.

      We will work, we will play, we will laugh, we will live. We will not waste one moment, nor sacrifice one bit of our freedom, because of fear.

      Devyani is an indicted official in India / she fraudently brought an apartment that she wasn't entitled to / if the US charged her and declared her persona non grata and expelled her, she would have been in jail once she came back

      instead, now her dad is joining politics and she could follow shortly / US created a martyr from an indicted civil servant - that's how incompetently the US authorities handled this case
