Writer Aatish Taseer loses Overseas Citizen of India status, banned from entering India

Following the Home Ministry's statement claiming author Aatish Taseer had suppressed information that his late father was of Pakistani origin, Taseer's Overseas Citizen of India (OCI) status was canceled on Thursday. A Home Ministry spokesperson said Taseer becomes ineligible to hold an OCI card, as per the Citizenship Act, 1955, as the OCI card is not issued to any person whose parents or grandparents are Pakistanis and he hid this fact.
