Indian American Journalist Deported From Delhi Airport

NEW DELHI – American journalist Angad Singh was deported to New York soon after he landed in Delhi on August 24 night, his mother claimed in a Facebook post.

Singh, who produces documentaries for Vice News with a focus on Asia, was on a personal visit to India, his mother Gurmeet Kaur said. “My son, an American citizen who traveled 18 hours to Delhi to visit us in Punjab, was deported. Put in the next flight back to New York,” she wrote.

“They did not give a reason. But we know it is his award-winning journalism that scares them. It is the stories he did and the stories he is capable of. It is the love for his Motherland that they can’t stand. It is the cutting-edge reporting of Vice News that gets to them,” Kaur claimed.

Singh has produced a series of documentaries on the COVID-19 pandemic in India, the farmers’ protests on the borders of the national capital against the now-repealed three farm laws, and made a documentary on Shaheen Bagh that became a symbol of the agitation against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act.

The Indian government has not made a statement on the matter.

  • As a non-India born but US born Sikh, he need to get a visa as a tourist to visit India. He is not an Indian citizen. Without a visa, the immigration officer in India has the right to refuse entry. He should apply for a visa to visit India and see what happens.
