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.
