New Delhi: A Delhi court has directed the government to forthwith deport a woman from Turkmenistan residing in the capital without valid passport and visa and
convicted her of the period already undergone in jail.

Aynur Gylychmommedova (30) was found in an inebriated
condition in Ashoka Hotel`s lobby here on January 6 last year
when she was abusing one of her friends whom she had come to
meet.

"The accused (Aynur) is a lady aged about 30 years.
She is in custody since January 6, 2010, when she was found in
India without a valid visa and since then she is languishing
in custody.

"In view of the facts and circumstances, hence, the
convict (Aynur) is sentenced to the imprisonment for the
period already undergone, however, with directions to the FRRO
to immediately deport her under the provisions," Metropolitan
Magistrate Sudesh Kumar said while holding her guilty under
provisions of Foreigners Act.

The court directed that its order be forwarded to the
deputy commissioner of police and Foreign Regional
Registration Offices (FRRO) for compliance.

The hotel authorities handed over Aynur to police after
failing to understand her language. She did not have a valid
passport and when she failed to produce any document related
to her stay here, she was arrested by Chanakyapuri police.

Aynur told the police she was a resident of Dwarka but
she failed to locate the place where she was allegedly
staying. Police came to know that she was a citizen of
Turkmenistan from its embassy here.

According to records of IGI airport authorities, Aynur
had arrived here on June 14, 2008. The investigating officer
deposed that it was revealed from FRRO documents that Aynur`s
visa had expired on June 27, 2008 and she was residing
illegally in India.
