Acquitted Aid Worker Free to Leave India

Narges Kalbasi, an aid worker acquitted weeks ago of charges of alleged negligence leading to the death of an Indian child Asim Jilakara during a picnic she had organized, said she finally received permission to leave Indian soil. “I will be in Iran next week,” Kalbasi said. “[The Indian] police have refused me a visa since the court acquitted me on March 25. After they failed in their attempts to bribe me again, they withdrew and issued my exit permit today,” Kalbasi said in a Telegram message on Saturday. Kalbasi, 28, was convicted in 2014 and jailed for a year over the death of the five-year-old. She denied negligence charges and was released on bail but banned from leaving India during the appeal. She gave a statement about the boy’s death to the police on the day of the incident, but a month later officers filed a complaint against her, insisting that she had thrown the boy into the river. Jilakara’s mother accused the aid worker of killing her son, but Kalbasi contended that she was caught up in local corruption. An online petition campaign launched in her support gathered hundreds of thousands of signatures.
