New Delhi: The Supreme Court today asked the Indian High Commissioner and Consulate General in Australia to help prevent Indian students from falling prey to
fake educational institutions there.

This order was passed by a Bench headed by Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan after it was informed by Attorney General G E Vahanvati that all the guidelines have been laid
down for the students going to Australia for education purposes.

Cases of students being duped by fake universities in Australia had come to light when a petition was filed seeking a direction to the government to take action for checking
racial attacks against Indians studying there.

The Attorney General said that the affidavit filed by Ministry of External Affairs has mentioned the websites which the students should go through for checking the veracity of
the universities.

The apex Court after hearing the AG`s submission said that in view of the affidavit, it was disposing of the petition.
