Headley`s immigration service client deported to India
Mumbai: An Indian who used the services of
Mumbai-based immigration offices of terror suspects David
Headley and Tahawwur Rana has been deported by US authorities
to India after his documents were allegedly found to be false.
The person (name withheld) hailing from a Gujarat town
arrived at the Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi
well past midnight last night, airport sources said today.
The FBI had informed the Indian authorities about the
detention of the person after Headley reportedly told them
about his clients who had used the services of his immigration
office in Mumbai, the sources said.
His statement was recorded by officials in the national
capital after which he was let off and allowed to travel back
to his native place in Gujarat as he did not have links either
with any terror organisation or with suspicious activities of
Headley and Rana.
The person, who appeared to be unaware of Headley`s
alleged terror connection, told the investigators that he had
paid huge sums of money to immigrate to the US from Canada,
the sources said.
He said US authorities had detained him for allegedly
entering that country on false documents.
The deportation comes barely days ahead of arrival of an
FBI team to India during which they would share the details of
further interrogation of Headley, whose court hearing in
Chicago has been deferred indefinitely in Chicago at the
instance of the federal investigating agency.
Headley, who was arrested by FBI on terror charges in
october last, ran a visa facilitation agency named Immigrant
Law Centre from the AC Market in Tardeo, Mumbai between
November 2006 and July 2008 before winding up his business in
this metropolis. The firm was helping people especially
unskilled workers to get visas for the US and Canada.
Rana, whose counsul has claimed in Chicago court that he
was innocent, is also alleged to be a part of this immigration
However, the Immigrant Law Centre in Chicago which is
being headed by one Raymond Sanders has denied any links with
the office of Mumbai as also with Headley and Rana.
