SummaryIndian diplomat Devyani Khobragade row turns violent in Mumbai, US MNC Domino's outlet vandalised.

Activists of a small Indian political group ransacked a Domino's Pizza outlet in a Mumbai suburb on Friday, demanding a ban on US goods until Washington apologises for the arrest and humiliating treatment meted out to Indian diplomat Devyani Khobragade (IFS), including body cavity search, strip-search and handcuffing, in New York that has touched off a furore back home.

Police said no-one was hurt in the attack, which came as diplomats from the two countries sought to defuse the row over the arrest and subsequent strip-search of Devyani Khobragade in a visa fraud case.

The Republican Party of India, which carried out the attack, sent pictures to media organisations showing a broken glass door at the outlet. The party said it wanted the United States to drop charges against the Devyani Khobragade.
