An Indian diplomat’s daughter is suing New York City’s government for $1.5m after she was wrongfully arrested on suspicion of sending obscene e-mails.
Krittika Biswas was alleged to have sent the e-mails to her high school teacher in February. She was subsequently cleared of the offence.
Her lawyer said that she was unlawfully held by the US authorities for more than 24 hours after her arrest.
There has so far been no comment on her claim from the US authorities.
