The visa of United Kingdom parliamentarian Debbie Abrahams was revoked as she was indulging in activities that went against India’s national interest, a government official said on Tuesday.
The Labour MP and leader of the U.K. Parliament’s All Party Parliamentary Group for Kashmir was deported to Dubai on Monday as she was found not in possession of a valid visa at the time of her travel to India and she was accordingly requested to return, the official said.
Ms. Abrahams has claimed she was “treated like a criminal” at the New Delhi airport before being sent back.
On Tuesday, she shared a copy of her e-business visa on Twitter. The visa, granted on October 7, 2019, was valid for a year to attend “business meetings.”
However, the government official told The Hindu that Ms. Abrahams’ e-Business Visa was revoked on February 14, 2020, on account of her indulging in activities that went against India’s national interest, and this was intimated to her the same day
Ms. Abraham had convened meetings on the human rights situation in Jammu and Kashmir as well as on the India-Pakistan conflict.
