Noida’s Champawat police have arrested a Pakistani-American woman, Farida Malik, who illegally entered India. Police have taken action after Champawat district court dismissed the appeal against the crime and bail. On 12 July 2019, Faridah was arrested while entering India from the international border of Banbasa without a passport and visa. He was booked under the Passport and Foreign Migration Act and sent to the Almora District Jail.
The High Court then granted conditional bail to Farida. At the hearing of the case, the Champawat CJM court found him guilty and sentenced him to four years rigorous imprisonment on March 5, 2020. Farida has challenged this decision in the Champawat District Court. On February 22, the district court dismissed Farida’s appeal and revoked his bail. The court also issued non-bailable warrants against him. Farida was arrested by the Banbasa police station on Friday evening from Sector-18 in Noida.
A police team appeared in court on Saturday after the arrest of Farida Malik from Noida. He was sent to jail on a court order. In March last year, the Champawat CJM court sentenced him to four years in prison.
