2,550 foreigners at Tablighi event banned from India for 10 years

Jun 04, 2020 21:20 IST

As many as 2,550 foreigners who attended the Tablighi Jamaat event in New Delhi have been banned from entering India for 10 years for flouting visa norms. Last month the Delhi police told the High Court that as many as 960 members of the Jamaat, who came to India on tourist and e-visas, are liable to face jail term of up to five years. The police pointed out that the foreigners violated the conditions of their visas by joining the religious congregation in Delhi's Nizamuddin, and are hence culpable for prosecution under Section 14 of the Indian Foreigners Act, 1946.
