  • Description

    Nineteen of the 40 Indians found in the cellar of a Northern England House recently arrived in New Delhi on Friday (10 July) after being expelled from Britain as illegal immigrants.

    Officials examined their Indian passports at the airport and declared all but one (which had expired) legal and valid.

    The group -- mostly young Sikhs -- reached England in a fishing boat after following an immigrant-smuggling route through France and West Germany. There has been a growing traffic in illegal immigrants into Britain since the Government reduced the immigration quota.

    Police found all 40 Indians in a cellar in Bradford, Yorkshire, 10 days ago.

    As the first batch to return set out for their Punjabi homes with no money or jobs, they told newsmen they did not plan to try to enter Britain again. Six of the 40 men will stay temporarily in Britain to give evidence in a court case arising out of the smuggling incident. The other 15 were due to arrive home on Saturday (11 July).
