Indian Woman In Coma Threatened With Deportation



London: A 31-year-old Indian woman has been threatened with deportation by UK Home Office officials despite being in a coma after having a major operation. Bhavani Espathi, 31, who was in a vegetative state for a week and a half after undergoing the operation, received a letter stating that her application for leave to remain had been refused and that she was liable to be forcibly removed, the Independent reported on Monday. The UK Home Office has been accused of being “cruel and insensitive” after the move. Lawyers and politicians said the case demonstrated how the UK immigration rules were permitting the government to “send people to their death abroad” as part of the hostile environment. Espathi’s fiance, Martin Mangler, 33, appealed against the decision. (IANS)
