New Delhi: Controversial Bangladeshi writer Tasleema Nasreen who has been living in India is likely to be given an extension to stay in India after her permission to live in India expired on Monday.
According to a Senior Home Ministry official, “The application (of the writer) to extend her residence permit is in the process. If it is extended, extension in such cases is from date of expiry.”
It has been reported that the Agency is waiting for the clearance from some security agencies on her plea for the extension of the permit.
She has been living in exile after leaving Bangladesh secretly following threats to her by fundamentalist groups for allegedly insulting Islam. Taslima, a citizen of Sweden, has been getting Indian visa on a continuous basis since 2004. She now stays in Delhi.
