Richard Rahul Verma to be next U.S. ambassador to India

New Delhi, Sept. 19 (ANI): Indian American Richard Rahul Verma has been nominated as the next U.S. ambassador to India, media reports said.

Verma, who was working as a member of the Secretary of State’s Foreign Affairs Policy Board, has been nominated by U.S. President Barack Obama for the post.

Former U.S. ambassador to India, Nancy Powell, had left New Delhi in May after the row over Indian diplomat Devyani Khobragade’s detention.

Verma lives in Bethesda, Maryland, in Washington DC and was born to Punjabi parents who immigrated to the U.S in the 1960s. (ANI)
