THE GUARDIAN/The travel ban preventing Australians in India from returning home could be subject to legal challenges, with lawyers and academics believing the extraordinary measure may breach the law.

The travel ban officially begins on Monday, in what is believed to be the first time Australia has banned its own citizens from returning home.
