India on Wednesday refused entry to British MP Lord Carlile, a member of former Bangladesh Prime Minister Khaleda Zia's legal team, on charges of having an invalid visa.

"Lord Alexander Carlile, a British national, arrived in New Delhi on July 11, 2018 without having obtained the appropriate Indian visa," External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said ina response to queries.

"His intended activity in India was incompatible with the purpose of his visit as mentioned in his visa application," Kumar said.

"It was therefore decided to deny him entry into India upon arrival."

Lord Carlile was scheduled to address the media in New Delhi on Thursday.

According to the Dhaka Tribune, he wanted to "explain the complexities of Khaleda Zia's case to the international media community".
