Mumbai: The Indo-American Chamber of Commerce (IACC rpt IACC) has strongly objected to the "humiliating treatment" meted out to Indian diplomat Devyani Khobragade by the US law enforcement agencies.

"The Chamber considers the action unacceptable and feels that the US government should tender an unconditional apology for the humiliation of the diplomat," said Nanik Rupani, president of Chamber`s West India Council, in a statement.

Devyani (39), serving as deputy Consul General in New York, was arrested and handcuffed in public while dropping her daughter to school last week, on charge of visa fraud.

She was reportedly subjected to strip search and incarcerated in a cell that was also occupied by drug addicts.
