Not granting citizenship rights is the “worst possible kind” of deprivation, the Delhi High Court has said, paving the way for an Indian couple, living in exile for 23 years as they were denied passports, to return home.

A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar directed the Centre to issue valid passports to the couple, who were Naga human rights activists, and said it was “extremely distressing that two Indian citizens have been constrained to seek refuge from the United Nations Commission for Refugees (UNHCR)” before they applied for and got Canadian citizenship.

“Can these deprivations ever be adequately compensated in any terms? The answer has to be a clear no, ” the bench said.
