Police said Paul Larudee, reportedly an activist of 'Free Gaza Movement', was taken into custody yesterday after he delivered an address at the district conference of the SIO at Tirur near here.

He was found to have violated visa conditions as foreigners coming to the country as tourists are not supposed to deliver speeches at public meetings, police sources said.

After questioning him, district police authorities cancelled his permit to stay in the country and sent him back last night.

The action was taken under provisions of the Foreigners Registration Act, sources said.
