Bengaluru: With the recent disturbance involving African national jolting the state, the Karnataka government has decided to deport students, who are staying in the state even after the expiry of their visa.

“All foreign nationals, who are staying in Karnataka without a valid visa, will be deported. The police department is conducting a survey in association with the Foreigners Regional Registration office. We will involve the Centre in the process, as the Union government has to issue the deportation order,” said Karnataka’s Home Minister G Parameshwara.

A police survey last year revealed that over 500 students from Africa were staying in India even after their visa had expired. Many of them had relocated to different states to evade the police.
