(Notte: The Express news service says “six more Telugu students” were deported with cancelled visas from JFK airport to Rajiv Gandhi Air port in India. That implies, 1. more Indian students had to face the same ordeal earlier, although it has not come to our notice, 2. They were Telugu students, 3. They were bound for Silicon Varsity. It is not clear if the earlier ones also were from Andhra. What is strange is that both students and parents remained “tight-lipped” about the details of their admission to Silicon Valley university. Something very fishy seems to be happening on the part of students. Earlier also similar complaints were heard from the part of Andhra students going abroad for studies. We are publishing this to alert Indian students not to get trapped in similar ordeals. James kottoor, editor)
HYDERABAD: It seems there is no end to the ordeal of Indian students seeking admission in American universities. The United States of America (USA) has deported six more Telugu students, who arrived at Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA) late on Sunday. They all were deported from the JFK International Airport in New York City.
The students were detained by the US Homeland Security officials and grilled for more than four hours. Students alleged that they were kept locked in enquiry rooms for more than 24 hours for questioning. The US officials did not even allow them to have food and water. With cancelled visas, they were forced to catch an immediate flight and return to Hyderabad.
When asked about the details of their admission in US universities, the students refused to talk to the media. The parents also were tight-lipped. According to officials at the RGIA, none of these students were travelling to join the controversial Northwestern Polytechnic University and Silicon Valley University.
