New Delhi, Aug 12 (UNI) The Delhi High Court today deported five people to Bangladesh stating the documents they relied upon to prove their nationality as Indian were forged.
Justice S L Bhayana ordered that Razia Sultan and four others be deported immediately to Bangladesh as the illegal immigrants were a threat to the country.
The Court observed that mushrooming of illegal imigrants in India was causing a threat to its security.
It also observed that Razia Sultan had produced her passport, ration card and election I-card to establish her identity and proof of being an Indian national but all of them have been forged which shows how easy it is for any foreigner to make all these forged documents here, which can be a serious threat to national security.
Justice Bhayana said the deportation process should not be considered as a punitive step, in fact it should be seen as if the citizens are being sent back to their own country.
Razia Begum and 16 others were arrested from Khanpur and were deported to Bangladesh by the Foreigner Regional Registration Offices. Razia and five others approached the Delhi High Court against FRRO's order but their plea was turned down as all the documents they had produced to prove their identities were found to be forged.
