Taslima Nasreen's visa extended by a year

Exiled Bangladeshi author Taslima Nasreen's Indian visa was on Friday extended by a year, Indian media reported quoting its Home Ministry.

 

Taslima's residence permit expired on August 17.

 

Taslima, living in exile since she sneaked out of Bangladesh in the wake of threats to her by fundamentalist groups, was given one-year visa by the government in 2014.

 

She has been getting Indian visa on a continuous basis since 2004. She now stays in a posh South Delhi locality.

 

On many occasions in the past also, she had expressed her desire to live in India permanently, especially in Kolkata.
