NEW DELHI, December 06. /ITAR-TASS/. Five Russians and one Ukrainian will be deported from India soon for illegal tourist guide activity, The Times of India reported on Friday.
The Russian and Ukrainian citizens were working as tourist guides, staying in Goa with a tourist visa, which is prohibited by the local law. “They will be soon deported to Russia,” the local law enforcement source said, adding that each of the Russians would have to pay a fine of 10,000 rupees (some $200).
It is reported that an Indian guide filed a complaint over the illegal tourist business activity. He reported to the police that “most of Russian guides have only a tourist visa.”
Lawyer Vikram Varma who traditionally defends the interests of Russians in Goa, told Itar-Tass that such cases are not rare. “Nevertheless, these situations are often very controversial. For example, even if you tell your friends about Goa and other guides report this, then it will be very difficult to prove that you are not engaged in travel business,” he said. According to the lawyer, another four people had been detained earlier this year for similar offences. Two of them were deported and two were fined.
