Malaysian authorities prevent Hindraf bailer from flying to IndiaApril 28th, 2008 - 11:31 am ICT by admin
Kuala Lumpur, Apr 28 (ANI): K.P. Samy, of Indian origin, who posted bail for the 64 Hindraf supporters charged with causing mischief and participating in an illegal assembly, was yesterday prevented at the KL International Airport from traveling to India.
I was with 60 people traveling to Chennai, and was singled out during the group check-in by an immigration officer, the staronline.com quoted Samy as saying.
He said that when he queried why he was not allowed to travel, the officers told him to go to the Immigration Department headquarters in Putrajaya to find out the reason. Finally, one of them told me that it was an instruction from the police, said Samy.
He added he could not understand why he was blocked from leaving the country as he had no pending police case or insolvency issues.
My taxes are also up to date and I have never been a guarantor for anyone. So, why are they stopping me from leaving the country? asked Samy. (ANI)
