India has expelled a Soviet diplomat in connection with the country's spy scandal, the newspaper Indian Express reported. The Express, which first linked France to the affair, said the Russian as well as one diplomat each from the Polish and East German embassies left India over the weekend. It did not name them, and there was no comment from the Soviet Embassy or Indian officials. Since the case broke, about 15 people have been arrested, and two French diplomats have been withdrawn.
