An NYPD cop is stuck in India after being arrested for accidentally bringing three bullets into the country, officials said Friday.
Officer Manny Encarnacion was taken into custody on March 10 after security at New Delhis Indira Gandhi International Airport found the bullets in his checked baggage, police sources said.
Im troubled by it, Mayor de Blasio said Friday of the arrest. We want to make sure we're providing support for him and make sure hes not being treated unfairly.
In December, the controversial arrest and strip search of New Delhis then-deputy consul-general Devyani Khobragade in Manhattan for allegedly paying her nanny as little as $3 an hour caused an international firestorm.
The incident fueled tensions during Encarnacions arrest.
The police official who questioned [Encarnacion] said, Oh New York City police. Youre the guys who like to strip-search our diplomats, said a source familiar with the incident.
Rep. Peter King accused India of seeking payback by arresting the cop.

How lenient are the police when someone accidently brings a concealed weapon into NYC?
KARMA! We're supposed to feel sorry for this JBT when he doubtless has zero tolerance form this same sort of action from the peasants?
Exactly. I would say India is a hell of a lot more lenient than the fascist constitution shredding city of New york. In NYC I believe it’s a mandatory 5 years in jail now. Only politicians and big Dem donors are allowed protection by guns.
He (DiBlasio) ought to be troubled by his law-breaking, terrorist police. I hope he sends gratitude to the authorities in India.
let him rot there for a while
he’ll have time to think about hassling americans over minor shit
This unionized thug cop will get more support form the state department than any American citizen in Benghazi did.
Seriously does anyone feel anything but satisfaction that a NY cop got caught in the same sort of thing that is unconstitutionally enforced in NYC by NY cops?
This guy is too stupid to be trusted with a weapon. If he did not know he had the three rounds, how can we trust him to be smart enough to know when to use those rounds and when not to use them?
This guy was asking for trouble, but he shouldn't be the only one in trouble.
So how're you liking those "No Tolerance" laws now, Mister Mayor?
Oh man! I don't believe in Karma...but if I did, this would be the perfect instance of Karma.
NYPD jackin people up for ammo and firearms all these years, now one of their own gets jacked for the same thing they'd been jackin. How sweet.
MILLER: Exclusive Shock verdict Mark Witaschek guilty of possessing muzzleloader bullets
Three bullets, huh? He must be Barney Fife first class.
How is that ‘zero tolerance’ working out for you, officer?
Really? Ritual slaughter? That’s your thing?
I get and agree that what goes around, comes around and that he shouldn’t expect any more leniency than a visitor to NYC would get under the same circumstances. But statements like that make us all sound nuts.
As others have already said: no sympathy from me. I have no doubt whatsoever that this guy, like the vast majority of New York City police officers, would show no mercy to anyone who accidentally broke any of that city’s draconian gun laws.
