Pakistani couple living illegally in Bengaluru deported

A third Pakistani national, Samaira, who is married to an Indian and has a child, is not deported and she is lodged in Bengaluru jail

The Pakistani couple living illegally in Bengaluru has been deported on Saturday, May 11. As per reports, Kashif Shamsuddin, 33, and his wife Kiran Ghulam Ali, 28, along with another Pakistani National, Samira Abdul Rehman managed to enter India illegally through Qatar, Nepal and Oman.

They had succeeded in illicitly obtaining Aadhaar and Indian voter IDs with the help of a tout. The police arrested them when they were travelling in a car which was suspected to be stolen. The court had then order punishment of 21 months on the grounds of illegally entering India without a passport or a visa and forging fake documents to prolong their stay.

The Karnataka HC on Wednesday, May 8, 2019, ordered their immediate deportation. The court had offered 2 weeks’ time to the authorities for their deportation. The couple were staying in Kumaraswamy Layout in Bengaluru until May 2017 when they were arrested by the police and fake documents were seized from them.

Samira had been married to an Indian citizen, Muhammad Shihab, who hails from Kerala, while he was working in Qatar. However, Samira’s parents didn’t allow her to stay with her husband. She then conspired with the couple to escape away to India and settle there. Samaira is not been deported and is currently serving time in Bengaluru jail.

However, they could manage to elude the authorities after procurement of fake voter IDs and Aadhaar cards. Taking the notice of the lapse, the High court has ordered the concerned authorities to immediately deport them. The government counsel responded to the court that they will have to seek permission from the authorities for their deportation.

However, hearing on the case on April 27, 2019, the court said that no such permission is required to deport them as these Pakistani nationals are being fed on public money. The government of India said that the Pakistani authorities are yet to confirm their nationality before which the deportation cannot be done. The court had asked the government to complete the deportation by May 5 as keeping them here would further burden the public exchequer.

As no cases are pending against the couple Kashif and his wife Kiran, residents of Chakrapot, Karachi district, the Ministry of External Affairs has given its approval for their deportation.
