Pune: A Nepalese student at the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) here was deported back to Kathmandu on December 5 for alleged "anti-India activities", police said today.

Confirming the deportation of Neetu Singh, a fourth year student undergoing editing course at FTII, DCP (Special Branch) Ravindra Sengaonkar said here the decision to deport was taken after she had been found involved in "anti-national activities".

The DCP refused to divulge further details of the case which has been taken up by All India Democratic Women's Association (AIDWA), alleging that Neetu's deportation was ordered by Pune police at the instance of her husband Amaresh Singh.

Singh happens to be an influential person and a nominated Member of Parliament in Nepal.

AIDWA's Kiran Moghe, who has written to Pune police on December 14 seeking details of her deportation, told PTI that authorities were not forthcoming with any information except that she was handed over to her parents after being found involved in "anti-national activities" in the city as a result of a "secret operation" by the police.

Moghe, the head of Maharashtra unit of AIDWA, alleged that Neetu was picked up on the night of December 5 from her hostel room at FTII by women cops in plainclothes without being told that she was going to be deported.
