The Indian government has asked for further information on the 271-name list from the United States before allowing their deportation, Swaraj said during a question period in the Rajya Sabha.
“Until we verify the nationalities of these people, how do we believe the claims in the list?” Swaraj has been quoted as saying.
“We have asked the U.S. government for more information and told them that we will give an emergency certificate for their deportation only after establishing their Indian nationalities.”
Meanwhile, External Affairs Ministry spokesman Gopal Bagalay said This is an ongoing matter.
“U.S. authorities had conveyed to India that the cases were pending, but “no details of these cases were provided. We have asked for the same,” media reports quoted him as saying
