India has denied a visa to Callum Macrae, the director of a documentary that exposed alleged war crimes in Sri Lanka.
"I am due to fly out on November 6 for a screening of my documentary in Delhi the next day. I find it extraordinary that I still do not have my visa, despite the fact that I first applied more than eight months ago," Macrae told Times of India over the phone from London.
Indian Minister of state for external affairs E Ahamed told TOI he didn't interfere in granting visas. "There are set protocols, and the visa officer has to take a call," he said.
