A Labour MP has been denied entry to India after arriving at a New Delhi airport.
Debbie Abrahams revealed she was told “no, no, no” by immigration officials on arrival in the country on Monday morning.
The Oldham East and Saddleworth MP told Sky News she had “no idea” why she was blocked from entering India.
She had been planning to stay with relatives and visit friends during parliament’s one-week break.
Kashmir is claimed by both India and Pakistan and the countries have fought two wars in an attempt to take control.
India’s move was seen as an attempt to tighten its control on the disputed region.
Ms Abrahams landed in New Delhi around 8.50am and subsequently presented the visa she had been issued last October, which she was told would be valid for 12 months.
“The immigration officer looked at his screen and started shaking his head and saying ‘no, no, no’,” she told Sky News’ All Out Politics.
“Then he said the visa had been rejected, took my passport, went off to consult with others, kept us waiting for about ten minutes and then said: ‘No, you are being denied entry’.”
Ms Abrahams described how she was then told “come with me” in a “quite aggressive” way, before being taken to an area marked as a “deportee cell”.
She refused to sit down, despite being asked, adding: “I wanted to make sure, not knowing what on Earth was going to happen, that people could see me and recognise something was awry.”
The British high commission have been in contact with Ms Abrahams, with the MP describing their efforts as “very good”.
But, she added: “I have no idea and still have no idea what the grounds for denying me entry are.”
Ms Abrahams said she had no plans to visit Kashmir during her “private visit” to India, although she had been planning to journey on to Pakistani capital Islamabad to discuss the issue.
She later told the Daily Mirror she had been “physically marched” on to a flight to Dubai after having been “deported” from India without her passport being returned.
A Foreign Office spokesperson said: “We are in contact with the Indian authorities, and Lord Ahmad has spoken with the Indian High Commissioner to understand why Deborah Abrahams MP was denied entry to India.
“We provided consular assistance to her whilst she was in New Delhi Airport.”
