As far as I know, US patents are *not* valid in India and vice versa.
I also don't think its under the ambit of the WTO, there might be some other
organization of the UN handling these things.

(I think) what that means is that if you go to the US, and they arrest

You cannot be arrested  in US for infringement  of patents in India (even US
patents)
What you cannot do is sell the product in the US, then it would amount to
patent infringement in the US, and you could get sued.
