New Delhi: Government is probing if agents were involved in duping the Indian students who are stranded in the US after the university in which they had
enrolled was charged with immigration fraud and will take firm
against them.

Overseas Indian Affairs Minister Vayalar Ravi on Sunday
said he has asked the Indian Mission in Washington to see
whether any agent in Andhra Pradesh was involved in the
incident.

"If agents are involved from Andhra Pradesh, I will
ask the Chief Minister to immediately prosecute the agents,"
he told reporters after meeting Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M
Karunanidhi.

He said the US authorities are wrong in confiscating
passports from the students of Tri-Valley University who face
the prospect of deportation after the university was charged
with immigration fraud.

"The actions by the US authorities are condemnable.
It is inhuman and unacceptable. They should not tie any radio
tag on their body. I am told it is very heavy and it is
impossible to carry," he said.

"They (students) are not going to run away," he said.

He said the Indian Embassy in Washington will send a
report tomorrow or on Tuesday about the incident after which a
decision will be taken.
