India and the US may still be locked in a legal tangle over diplomat Devyani Khobragade, but at least it seems the family will soon be reunited.

An Indian official in New York has confirmed that Khobragade’s husband Aakash Singh Rathore, an American citizen, will be taking up a teaching job at the Jawaharlal Nehru University. Khobragade’s two daughters, also American citizens, will be joining them.

Rathore was born in New York and teaches at the University of Pennsylvania.

Washington has so far refused to heed to India’s demand to drop charges of visa fraud and underpaying her nanny against Khobragde, who cannot enter the US in a non-immune status.

JNU vice-chancellor SK Sopory, however told the Hindustan Times that he was not aware of any job offer to Rathore.

Meanwhile, Devyani’s father and retired IAS officer Uttam Khobragade told HT that Rathore was “looking at options. He will either join Delhi University or JNU”. He also pointed out that Rathore was teaching at DU earlier as a reader in philosophy.

Rathore and the two children were staying on Indian mission premises in New York even after Khobragade’s posting there had ended and she had left the US. Devyani is now posted as a director in the external affairs ministry headquarters in Delhi.
