Nigerian asked to quit India
Concerned over the increasing cases of foreign nationals being involved in criminal offences in the city, the Commissionarate police have decided to act tough against them and straight away deport them.
On Wednesday, the police directed a Nigerian tourist, Godnes Thomson, whose visa and passport had become invalid for over six months, to leave India at the soonest.
The Nigerian had lodged a complaint with the Kharvel Nagar police station about loss of his passport. But the police got suspicious and detained him after he made contradictory statements.
City DCP Anup Sahu said Thomson was repeatedly changing his statements and concealing his identity. “During interrogation, it was found that the concerned Nigerian national was staying in violation of the visa norms. Though he claimed that he had come for business purpose, he could not submit any evidence in this regard,” said Sahu. Sahu further informed that earlier the Nigerian and Indian Embassy officials were informed about the incident and now a ‘leave India’ notice has been served to the Nigerian.
It might be mentioned here that eight girls from Thailand were detained after they were found to be engaged in sex trade in the city.
