The rising Asian music star, Garry Sandhu, has lost his battle with UK immigration officials and has confirmed that he will be deported back to India tomorrow. The singer made the announcement on his Facebook page today, with many of his 14,000 rushing to comment on the status update and offer their support.
The award winning music star’s future in the UK has been hanging in the balance since his arrest on October 27th 2011 by UK Border Agency after he was suspected of breaking UK immigration law. It later transpired that Garry Sandhu had remained in the UK after his visa had run out, which lead the authorities to track him down and ask questions about the legitimacy of his residency in the UK.
Despite being detained in an immigration detention centre since his arrest, aside from a brief period before Christmas when he was released on bail, Garry has kept his fans up to date on his situation through his social media page.
Close friend and fellow music star Roach Killa posted a statement on Garry’s behalf in the wake of his arrest last year, with Garry Sandhu taking to his Facebook page himself today to break the news of his imminent deportation. In the status update, the vocalist writes defiantly, “To my haters, you will never stop me making music wherever I am in the world.”
The news of Garry Sandhu’s deportation will come as quite a blow for the Asian music fans as the singer was seen as one of the big stars of tomorrow on the UK bhangra scene with Garry scooping two of the top trophies at the 2011 Brit Asia Music Awards including Best Newcomer and Best Male Act.
