Man deported from Abu Dhabi

Kochi: A man was deported from Abu Dhabi on Monday after his Arab employer terminated his service.

Abdul Jabbar Panamkutty (40), a resident of Palakkad, was working in a hotel before he came home on leave. He returned last Thursday. However, he was denied entry on the grounds that his visa had been cancelled, emigration sources said.

Sent back

A woman aged below 30 years, bound for Kuwait on a visiting visa, was sent back by the emigration authorities here for not carrying the original visa.

Since women below 30 years are banned from going abroad as housemaids considering their vulnerability to be exploited, strict measures are in place to avoid such circumstances, officials said.

Lack of documents

Three other persons bound for Dubai were also turned back for want of proper documents.
