"No federal agent goofed up in reading the form," sources said, rubbishing allegations made by Khobragade's lawyer Dan Arshack.

"It is clear that the salary details required on the visa application form are that of the employee and not the employer," they said.

There is no question of apology to India over the arrest of Khobragade, the then deputy consul general of India, in New York on December 12 which has led to strong protests by the Indian government and widespread indignation in India.

Khobragade was later released on a $250,000 bond after pleading not guilty in court.

The Indian government has demanded withdrawal of the case and an apology for the treatment meted out to the diplomat.

Sources also added that Khobragade's domestic help Sangeeta's family was evacuated to the U.S. because the justice department was compelled to make sure that victims, witnesses and their families were safe and secure while cases were pending.
