Why Baloch leader Bugti may not get asylum in India


New Delhi, Dec 3: Whether or not Baloch leader Brahamdagh Bugti will get asylum in India or not is a decision that would be taken after the winter session of Parliament.

The decision would be taken by the Ministry for External Affairs after verifying the feedback given by both the Intelligence Bureau and the Research and Analysis Wing.


It is a sensitive issue and hence needs to be carefully weighed before any decision is taken.

The Intelligence Bureau has however given the green signal and says that Bugti can be granted asylum.

While the Research and Analysis Wing has not objected, it would still give a detailed report to the government.

No asylum policy in India:

The problem however is that India does not have an asylum policy.

Bugti who lives in Geneva had in September applied for asylum in India.

The MEA which was in receipt of this application forwarded the same to the IB and R&AW seeking a detailed verification and report.

Asylum may not be possible in the absence of a policy says an Intelligence Bureau official.

We have found nothing averse against Bugti, but there are certain laws that need to be abided by the officer also notes.

After the winter session of Parliament a final call would be taken.

The likelihood is that Bugti may be offered a long term visa.

The other option is to give him a registration certificate which had been issued in the case of the Tibetan refugees in India.
