MUMBAI, India — The diplomat at the center of an ugly spat between the United States and India flew back to New Delhi today after U.S. officials granted her immunity from prosecution on charges of falsifying visa documents and lying about underpaying her housekeeper.

The diplomat, 39-year-old Devyani Khobragade, was indicted by a federal grand jury in New York late Thursday, but the State Department allowed her to leave the United States in a bid to end a monthlong quarrel that has damaged U.S.-India relations. Khobragade was arrested Dec. 12 in Manhattan after dropping her daughters off at school, an incident that sparked a furor in India, where officials complained that the issue wasn’t handled quietly between the governments.
