WASHINGTON — The U.S. Marshals Service is denying claims by an Indian diplomat that she was subjected to a cavity search when she was arrested on charges of visa fraud.

The Marshals Service said India's deputy consul general was strip-searched in accordance with standard procedures and put in a detention cell with female detainees. The diplomat is Devyani Khobragade. She claims marshals also conducted the far-more intrusive cavity search and took a DNA swab.

The Marshals said that any DNA swab would have been done by the diplomatic security agents who arrested her.

Khobragade is accused of submitting false documents to obtain a work visa for her housekeeper. She claims she paid the woman $4,500 a month, but actually paid her about $3 per hour.
