Protesters have taken to the streets in southern Indian city of Chennai, demanding an apology from the US over the arrest and mistreatment of an Indian diplomat in New York.

The march on the streets of Chennai was organized by student organizations.

The protesters called for an apology from the US government over the arrest of an Indian diplomat, urging New Delhi to be stricter on the issue.

The aftershocks of a diplomatic row between the United States and India are still felt.

Two weeks ago, New York police arrested and strip-searched Devyani Khobragade, a member of India’s diplomatic mission. She has been accused of visa fraud and making false statements about her housekeeper.

Her maltreatment caused anger in India and sparked a series of reprisals, including the removal of protective barricades outside the US Embassy in New Delhi.
