AP Govt trying to help students duped by American varsity
Hyderabad: Andhra Pradesh Government on Wednesday
said it was trying to extend legal help to students from the
state facing the threat of deportation from the US after they
were duped by the alleged immigration scam of a university.
"We don`t set the laws there (in US). We cannot
comment on their legal system. But we are trying to help all
students legally," Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy said.
Replying to questions at a press conference here
tonight, the CM said he had written a letter to the External
Affairs Minister S M Krishna as well as the Indian Ambassador
to the US Meera Shankar to extend all legal help to the
Reddy termed as "unfortunate" the comments made by a
US Consulate official here that the radio-tagging of the duped
students looked trendy.
Some Indian students at the Tri-Valley University in
California are in danger of being deported after the college
was shut down over alleged visa fraud. The students, mostly
from Andhra Pradesh, are being made to wear ankle bracelets so
that they can be tracked.
