Pak national ready for deportation

By Sanjoy Roy

GUWAHATI, June 13 � After spending nearly 14 years in Assam prisons, Pakistani national Fashiullah Khan, who was arrested in 1999 in Guwahati for his alleged ISI links, is ready for deportation.

Presently lodged in the Guwahati Central Jail, Khan is now awaiting the nod from the Centre which will be approached by the State Home department in a couple of days.

Post-Sarabjit death row, this is believed to be a vital development in terms of Indo-Pak ties as Khan is reportedly one of the 30 Pakistani nationals to have completed their sentences in Indian jails.

According to a recent report, there are 469 Pakistani prisoners languishing in Indian jails which include 164 fishermen and 305 civil prisoners.

The Pakistani national had completed his sentence in 2011 itself. In some cases, charges against him could not be proved in the court of law including the one related to ISI links.

The Guwahati Central Jail authorities on June 3 wrote to Court of Chief Judicial Magistrate, Kamrup (Guwahati) and District Magistrate, Kamrup Metropolitan asking them to take necessary action for the Pakistani national�s deportation.

�The embassy has been moved and very soon the Centre is expected to take up the matter of his deportation along with few others,� official sources claimed.
