Asian singing star Garry Sandhu has been deported back to India by the UK Border Agency after losing an appeal, Desiblitz reports.
Garry Sandhu has now been deported back to India by the UK Border Agency (UKBA) after losing his appeal to remain in the country following his arrest in October 2011 for violation of UK immigration laws.
The UKBA confirmed the deportation of Garry Sandhu and informed DESIblitz of the conclusion of the case of the popular Bhangra Singer who became very popular for his songs in 2011.
While on immigration bail under orders to report regularly to an immigration centre, he absconded. The UKBA eventually caught up with the wayward rapper in January 2008 when he received a criminal conviction for obstructing a police officer after being apprehended whilst driving without insurance.
He was then placed back on immigration bail while the UK Border Agency worked to obtain emergency travel documents to remove him because he did not have a passport.
After an emergency travel document had been obtained, officers visited his address in Hanover Road, Rowley Regis in October 2009 but discovered to their amazement he had absconded again.
He was finally arrested on 27 October 2011 and, on this occasion, detained.
He was temporarily released in November while the UK Border Agency considered further representations. These were rejected and Mr Sandhu was picked up on 16 December before being removed to India on 12 January.
Gail Adams, UK Border Agency regional director, said:
“We will not tolerate abuse of the immigration rules. This man tried to evade our officers by adopting an alias and absconding. But his arrest and removal should send a message to all immigration offenders that they can run but they can’t hide. We will track them down and we will remove them.”
Last month the UK government’s Ministry of Justice brought in new charges for some asylum, immigration and visa appeals and introduced new procedures for submitting appeals against refusals.
Fees of £80 for a ‘paper consideration’, a decision made by an Immigration Judge on papers without a hearing, and £140 for a full oral hearing at a tribunal will be applied to appeals against decisions taken on or after 19 December 2011.
Professional immigration appeals specialists will only take on appeals which have a fair chance of succeeding. OISC registered Level 3 Immigration Advisers such as Bison UK will not submit appeals unless there are grounds of appeal and they feel there is a good chance of overturning the refusal decision.
