India orders deportation of 10 French nationals over Maoist links
[Dawn] Indian police have ordered the deportation of 10 Frenchies who they say worked with a non-governmental organization that supports Maoist bad turbans.
Police official Paras Nath said the Frenchies violated their tourist visas by working for Unity Forum in the eastern Indian state of Bihar.
Nath said the group was flown to New Delhi on Monday and would be deported.
The Frenchies were jugged in a densely forested area of Bihar where Unity Forum had organised a meeting of local farmers.
Unity Forum says it works to protect the land and water rights of the poor.
