Neetu Singh, the Nepali student who was deported from India for alleged anti-national activities, has sought divorce from her husband Amresh Singh, a former Nepali Congress lawmaker.

A final year student at Film and Television Institute of India in Pune, Neetu’s deportation allegedly under pressure from Amresh, a PhD student at Jawaharlal Nehru University, had subsequently been revoked.

In her petition filed in the Kathmandu district court on Thursday, Neetu cited her husband’s role in her deportation as a reason for seeking separation. The couple had married three years ago but the relationship turned sour soon after.

“My husband using his political power, made the Indian government to deport me to Nepal on December 9,” Neetu stated in her petition.
