New Delhi: In the case of deportation of Neetu Singh - a Nepali national who was studying at the Film and Television Institute of India in Pune - her estranged husband, Amaresh, an influential Nepali leader who has been accused of being behind the move, has broken his silence.

He told CNN-IBN, "Neetu's charges are baseless. This is a political conspiracy. I have not got Neetu deported. This is an absurd charge. I haven't met or spoken to Neetu in over a year and I am not in hiding. Neetu has nothing to fear from me."

Neetu was picked up from her hostel in Pune on December 5 and deported to Nepal.

NEPALI GIRL DEPORTED: Neetu was picked up from her hostel on Dec 5 and deported for anti-national activities.
