LONDON: A Pakistani teenager, who misrepresented his identity to stay in the UK, is to be deported home.
Lahore-born Daniyal Shahzad, who had told the authorities his name was Ahmar Rana, is being held in custody at a police station in Cardiff in Wales and will be taken to a detention facility before being returned to his home country by the next week.
The 19-year-old won public support in a campaign against his deportation from Carmarthenshire, in Wales. But it later emerged that he had lied about his identity, falsely claiming his name was Ahmar Rana. The Home Office said the UK Border Agency and courts decided that he had no legal right to stay in the UK and must return to Pakistan.
An official of the UK Border Agency in Wales said the agency and the courts both fully considered Shahzad’s case and came to the same conclusion that he has no legal basis to remain here and must return to Pakistan. Shahzad has lived in Wales since 2008, moving in with foster parents John and Lesley Hillard, who said they were stunned by the admission, but they were standing by him.
