The four-year-old daughter of Tamil asylum seekers who settled in Biloela has lost her last ditch bid to apply for a protection in the High Court of Australia.
The court on Thursday morning refused a special leave request from Tharnicaa Murugappan’s lawyers to hear the case.
The Murugappan family have been fighting a long legal battle to remain in Australia since they were removed from their central Queensland home in 2018.

They are currently in Perth after receiving temporary visas to travel to the mainland from Christmas Island after Tharnicaa fell seriously ill with a blood infection in June.
Both Tharnicaa and her older sister Kopika were born in Australia.
