French national, who has been living in Nangal without a visa, has been immediately told to leave the country.

SSP Ropar LK Yadav said the 65-year-old French lady Annie Mary Catherine had been living in the Naval Ji Ki Kutiya (an ashram) area of Nangal since May 28, 2007.

The issue came to light when Catherine requested an extension of visa expressing her desire to stay at the ashram forever and pursue her religious pursuits. As per her request application, she had come to India in 1989. During this time period, she came in contact with Swami Basant and Swami Naval. Since 1997, she has been regularly coming to the ashram on tourist visa.
