The Fundamental Right to Travel Abroad

Parvez holds a Green Card, enabling him to reside in the US. He has resided in the US since 1985. Parvez Noordin Lokhandwalla allegedly forged and fabricated the Power of Attorney of Shalin Lokhandawalla. An FIR was registered in 2014. However, between 10.03.2015 and 10.01.2020, Parvez travelled between the US and India on 16 occasions. There is no reason or justification to deny him the permission, which has been sought, to travel to the US for 8 weeks, subject to the terms imposed.
