Preet Bharara US Attorney in Devyani Khobragade case is Punjabi NRI
HARISH DIDO | 14 Jan 2014

No doubt, India and recently Punjab has given a due respect to the Non Resident Indians (NRI) but at the same time, a Punjabi NRI recently become a part of media news is all bent upon to put India in great trouble rather in awkward situation.

Yes, the US Prosecutor, Preet Bharara who has opposed the Devyani Khobragade, the Indian Diplomat who was arrested for visa fraud by US authorities last month and has now returned to India, which has become a prestige question for India and Indians.   

 It is a separate issue that 45-year-old Bharara was born in Firozepur in Punjab to a Sikh father and a Hindu mother. His parents migrated to the US, when he was a child. He grew up in the suburbs of New Jersey.   Bharara was a bright student in school and college. He became a lawyer in the early 1990s. In 2012 'Time' magazine named him as one of the 100 most influential persons in the World.

According to the people who have interacted with him, Bharara has a very ambitious man. He always wants to be on the top. He even wants to shed his Indian origin image and prove that he is a perfect American.

Despite a search for number of days about Preet Bharara about his connection in Ferozepur but all in vain. The most surprising factor is that even the intelligence agency or local citizens are not aware about Bharara’s whereabouts. Some people say that his father was a doctor and since he could not settle in his profession, he shifted to America. 

Another seriousness of the matter is that none of his relative has come forward so far despite appearing of his name in the media.   Perhaps, they may be feeling insulted with the discriminatory attitude of Bharara with the Indians.

As per the sources of New York, Preet Bharara wanted to get rid of his identity as Indian and this could be verified from the fact that he is being charged for his caste discrimination towards Indians despite himself having Indian origin. 

It is said about him that Preet Bharara married to a Muslim girl and blessed with three children and this could also be reasons that he sees the Indian people with hatred.  He has appeared arrogant and ego-driven throughout the whole affair.

Keeping aside his Indian origin, the people also say about him that because of his projecting himself a different and his arrogance is souring, the relations between two countries day by day.
