The Canada Border Services Agency has stayed the deportation of a paralyzed Indian man after a standoff at Vancouver International Airport.

About 1,000 people gathered outside the departures level of the airport surrounding a van carrying Laibar Singh. Border services officials said they didn't want to wade into the crowd to escort Singh to his flight.

Harsha Walia of the human rights group No One is Illegal has told reporters Singh's deportation has been stayed.

Singh's supporters have begun dispersing and the vehicle he's in has left.

Singh came to Canada on a forged passport in 2003 but suffered a massive stroke three years later that left him a quadriplegic.

Today is International Human Rights Day and Singh's supporters say his deportation would be a violation of his human rights.
