Indian officials deny British MP Debbie Abrahams’s entry in Delhi and was later deported to Dubai. She questions the government if it is because of her comments on Article 370.
British MP Debbie Abrahams was recently in India but was deported to Dubai after she was denied a visa. She was very vocal and critical about the government’s decision on Kashmir under Article 370 and alleged that she was treated like a criminal. The British lawmaker who arrived at Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi was informed that her e-visa had expired and that she could not enter the country. Government officials, however, said that she lacked a valid visa and that she was informed about the same before her arrival. The officials also said that she can apply for a revised visa online or in the nearest Indian mission.

Why did the Indian Government revoke my visa AFTER it was granted? Why didn't they let me get a 'visa on arrival'? Is it because I have been critical of the Indian Government on #Kashmir human rights issues? https://t.co/aNhvFpc10D
