Supreme Court halts deportation of Cooch Behar woman declared foreigner by tribunal

The appeal said that it was ‘practically impossible’ for the woman to get the documents as she shifted to Assam on account of her marriage, while originally belonging to Cooch Behar in West Bengal.

“In course of her migration, it was not possible to keep track of those documents since her parents have already died,” the plea said.

Other documents establishing her link to her parents, both Indian citizens, have been destroyed in floods, it was contended.

Further, the High Court wrongly discarded her school-leaving certificate as proof of Indian residency and citizenship on grounds of the headmaster not having been cross-examined.

“It is not possible for her to bring the Headmaster from West Bengal to Lakhimpur, Assam,” she said.
