After the denial of visa to two researchers, Foundation called off the visit,” he tweeted Priyang Pandey, senior research fellow at the Foundation, said Madhav holds a valid Chinese visa till November this year. The delegation was to visit Fudan university in Shanghai next week. The development comes amid the stand-off between India and China armies near Sikkim.
