Rajiv Gandhi International Airport witness the superstar and singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan being deported as according to reports a violation of rules happened. The Emirates flight that on which he was on board resulted in him being sent back to UAE.
The technical hindrance was that Pakistani nationals are not allowed to enter India through Hyderabad and can only do so through Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Chennai.
“That’s why the singer was asked to return to Abu Dhabi and travel to the city through the valid entry points,” the official said and further said “If a Pakistani national enters through any other airport, except the four metros, his/her travel to India cannot be recorded. So it is mandatory that they stick to the four ports. This system has been put in place to monitor the movement of Pakistani nationals in and out of the country.”
The trip resulted in rescheduling of the singer’s performance and was not postponed.
