Pakistani national living in Uttar Pradesh for 30 years

Earlier this year, it came to notice that a 65-year-old woman from Pakistan, had been living in a village in Uttar Pradesh, for about 30 years. She was presiding as the interim head of the village panchayat since last year, until authorities found out that did not have an Indian citizenship.

The woman named Bano Begum had resigned as the interim panchayat chief in December, after an investigation into a complaint registered by a villager started.

Officials said that her long-term visa was valid, but she had obtained her ration and Aadhar cards, by giving false information.

"The complaints were probed by SDM Jalesar SP Gupta and DPRO Alok Priyadarshi, and were found to be true," District Magistrate of Etah Sukhlal Bharti said.
