New Delhi, Jul 23: Controversial Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasrin, may have to leave India soon and apply for a fresh visa because her travel document expires in the month of Aug.
Official sources said the government has already made it clear that Taslima's visa cannot be extended beyond Aug 16, 2010 as her travel document had been issued under the category 'Miscellaneous'.
According to the sources Taslima is also trying for a permanent residency in India. Her application for granting a permanent residency in the country has been hanging in balance for years together.
Doctor-turned writer, Taslima was shifted from Kolkata residence after violent protest by some Muslim organizations, over her controversial book "Dwikhondito" (divided into two).
Taslima has lived in exile in many countries including France, Sweden, US and India since leaving her home in Dhaka in a cloak of secrecy in 1994. During her stay in India in the last 5 years, she has periodically travelled abroad with the last trip being in Aug 2009.
