India expels three Chinese scribes for un-journalistic activitiesJuly 24, 2016 08:57
India has expelled three journalists of the Chinese official news agency, Xinhua, by refusing to renew their visas to work in the country, a move that could worsen the already strained relations between the two countries.
The three journalists have been ordered to leave India by July 31. Journalists Wu Qiang and Lu Tang head Xinhua's bureau in New Delhi and Mumbai respectively. The third, She Yonggang, is a reporter based in Mumbai.
No official reason was given for the Indian government's decision, but sources said the three had come under the "adverse attention of security agencies" for allegedly indulging in activities beyond their journalistic brief.
