New York: 


An Indian diplomat's daughter who was suspended, arrested and forced to spend a day in jail during her senior year in February 2011 on cyber-bullying charges, has won a $225,000 settlement from New York City.

The settlement agreement, approved by Manhattan federal judge John Koetl, also praised Krittika Biswas, daughter of Debashish Biswas, former vice consul at the Indian consulate here, for being an honour student while at John Bowne High School in Queens.

"We have vindicated Krittika's honour, the Indian diplomat's honour, and India's honour in the US," her lawyer Ravi Batra said Thursday.
