Canada has deported the mastermind of the 1984 Indian Airlines plane hijack to India, ending a 15-year legal process after he arrived in the country in 1995 with a fake Afghan passport. The Canadian government had been trying to deport Parminder Singh Saini since he arrived in the country in 1995 under a false identity. He fought his deportation in the Federal Court of Canada but after the case was dismissed on Tuesday, the Canada Border Services Agency acted swiftly. Saini, designated a “danger to Canadians,” boarded a plane here on Tuesday morning.
