dear arul,<quoted text>
.......... She could have been permitted by humantarian grounds.
so far i know about it, the government of india in 2003 had imposed a ban on entry of the mother of pravakaran and still the government had not lifted it. that is the reason she was not allowed to enter into the indian soil (that does not amounts to deportation but denial to enter). i had no information about the visa angle.
\however the same issue has been raised in the supreme legislature of India and some honorable members have not liked the event. indian governemt, if situation arises, may lift the ban and there would be no problem of the old lady to get medical treatment.
\by the way where is she right now? HAS SHE GOT THE MEDICAL TREATMENT OR NOT?
