Family Blames UK Home Office for Man’s Death After Deportation

The family of Sudharsan Ithayachandran, a Sri Lankan man, is pointing fingers at the UK Home Office for his death, following his deportation.

Sudharsan, 41, was sent back to Sri Lanka on December 24, 2019, leaving behind his wife, Subatra, who is deaf, and their two British citizen children, aged eight and nine.we

According to reports, Sudharsan admitted to using false documents and working illegally at Tesco in the UK.

Despite being allowed by an immigration tribunal to live with his family in the UK, the Home Office allegedly delayed issuing his return visa for several months.

Tragically, Sudharsan was found collapsed at his accommodation in Sri Lanka on May 19, 2024, and passed away after being taken to the hospital.

While the cause of death is suspected to be sepsis, no medical records confirming this have been provided.

His family has blamed the Home Office for his death, stating that Sudharsan fell into deep depression due to his separation from his children and the Home Office’s delay in facilitating his return to the UK.

Sudharsan’s mother-in-law, Yasadora Nagendra, described him as the “pillar of the family,” emphasizing that his deportation was unjust and contributed to his untimely death.

Legal proceedings were initiated against the Home Office regarding the delay in Sudharsan’s return visa issuance, but he died before he could reunite with his family in the UK.

Lou Calvey, director of the charity organization Asylum Matters, raised concerns about Sudharsan’s case, questioning why he was deported despite having clear rights to remain in the UK and why the Home Office delayed implementing the court’s ruling reversing the deportation.

In response, an unnamed spokesperson from the Home Office stated that deportation orders are assessed case by case, and individuals are responsible for applying for entry clearance to the UK after an appeal has been allowed.
