Two Chinese citizens, including a woman, have been ordered to leave the country within five days after it was found that they had allegedly violated the visa norms during their visit to Uttarakhand, said police.

Deepak Bhat, inspector local intelligence unit at Nainital, said that two Chinese citizens — Leao Lie Qing and Shu Xin He — had reached an industrial unit in Nainital district for some trade purpose, but their Visa document showed they had come on tourist visa while the purpose of their visit was written as ‘business’.

Bhat said it was a clear violation of visa norms under Indian Foreigner Act 1946 section 3 sub-section 2C. They have been asked to leave India within five days, the officer said.

Section 3 of The Foreigners Act, 1946 concerns prohibiting, regulating or restricting the entry of foreigners into India or, their departure from India or their presence or continued presence here.

Under sub section 2C, the foreigner “shall not remain in India, or in any prescribed area therein; shall, if he has been required by order under this section not to remain in India, meet from any resources at his disposal the cost of his removal from India and of his maintenance therein pending such removal.”
