After deporting students bound for low-profile universities in the US like Silicon Valley University, North-Western Polytechnic University etc., there are now reports of students going to top-rated US universities like Colorado State University and University of Iowa being sent back after they failed to convince US immigration officials. In the past 24 hours, about 50 to 60 students who were deported from US arrived at the Shamshabad airport. Over 130 students have been sent back from the US in the last three days.
An RGIA official said, “While the problem was only with Air India in the beginning, students who flew to US on Emirates, Etihad, Jet Airways and British Airways are also being deported now. The airport has received over 130 such students so far. Majority of the students belong to TS and AP."
“We got information that two students each who got admission in Colorado State University and University of Iowa, were today deported to India by US immigration officials after they failed to give proper answers regarding their stay and finances. They are on way to Dubai now," said Mr Surya Ganesh Valmiki, CMD, Valmiki Group.
