Yashika Bageerathi

A 19 year old student, who is fighting deportation has had a last minute reprieve. The Telegraph reports that MP David Burrows had made representations to the Home Office to delay her deportation, and that this is the apparent reason for BA’s decision not to allow her to board.

Yashika Bageerathi, from Mauritius was at Gatwick Airport awaiting boarding, and deportation, when she was returned to the detention centre.

Apparently, the Home Office and BA have refused to say why Yashika Bageerathi’s planned removal was postponed yesterday but it came amid a high profile campaign to stop it.
