New Delhi: Three Israeli diplomats accused of assaulting an immigration official at the Indira Gandhi International Airport here have been repatriated, Israeli Embassy said here today.
The decision to send back the diplomats, who have been slapped with criminal charges by the police, was taken by the embassy on “its own”.
“We take such incidents very seriously. And we have already repatriated the diplomats just after the incident took place,” Israeli embassy spokesperson told PTI.
Meanwhile, the police are also in the process of sending a detailed report to the Ministry of External Affairs about the charges against the diplomats, sources said.
