Adnan Sami: I’d applied for Indian visa extension

The singer who was pulled in for overstaying in India says he is following the procedure

Pakistani Singer Adnan Sami, who has been in the news for reportedly getting a notice from Mumbai police for overstaying in India, says he is a law abiding citizen and has followed due procedure and applied for extension for his visa on September14.

“This is to inform all concerned that my visa did expire on October 6, 2013. As per standard rules, I had made an application for extension of my visa to the concerned department of the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) in New Delhi on September 14, 2013,” Adnan said in a statement released Tuesday.

“This is a standard procedure that is followed by all foreigners and I have been following it for the past 14 years. Hence this year is no different. Until the visa extension is granted, I have to be in India as I cannot leave,” he added.

According to reports, Adnan was Tuesday served notice by the Mumbai police for overstaying here. “The Mumbai Police is very much aware of my situation… The important part is that I have followed procedure as per routine since I respect all procedures, and have followed them throughout my 14 years of residence in India and will always continue to do so as a law abiding citizen,” said the singer.

His visa expiry date came to light during a court hearing between him and his ex-wife Sabah Galadari over possession of a duplex flat in Lokhandwala complex.

Following this, the film wing of Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) had demanded that the singer should be deported.
