MUMBAI, India -- A Dominos Pizza outlet in a Mumbai suburb was ransacked by activists from a small Indian political group on Friday who also demanded a ban on U.S. goods until Washington apologizes for the arrest of an Indian diplomat in New York.
Police said no-one was hurt in the attack, which came as diplomats from the two countries sought to defuse the row over the arrest and subsequent strip-search of Devyani Khobragade in a visa fraud case.
The Republican Party of India, which carried out the attack, sent pictures to media organizations showing a broken glass door at the outlet. The party said it wanted the United States to drop charges against the Indian diplomat.
