The Fundamental Right to Travel Abroad

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