      U.S. Energy Secretary Postpones India Trip


      U.S. energy secretary Ernest Moniz postponed his planned trip to India, which was scheduled next week, an energy department official said on Wednesday.

      The move comes amid an escalating row between the countries over the treatment of Devyani Khobragade, India’s deputy consul general in New York. India is furious at her arrest, handcuffing and strip-search last month after she was accused of visa fraud and of paying her maid less than a third of New York’s legal minimum wage.
