Kathmandu: The government has taken up with the government of Britain the case of Sulav Khadka who was harassed, humiliated, and asked to return to Nepal obstructing his studies at York St.John University.

According to a high-placed source, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has taken up with the British Embassy in Kathmandu, as well as the British  Ministry of Home and Foreign Affairs and the University the case of Khadka, seeking urgent action and justice.

Khadka had been admitted to the University, was, however, put through extensive interrogation at the Manchester Airport by the security officials and asked to return concluding that the documents he was carrying were not convincing. He was not allowed any access to the University, but its authorities responded to Khadka when he wrote to the Guardian newspaper about the ordeal he faced.

The University, as reported by Guardian, offered to admit him in the next academic session, and pay for his visa.
