|Radio collars have been removed from 12 out of 18 students of the sham Tri Valley University in California, said the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) which had issued a notice to the Indian ministry of external affairs on the issue.|
"The ministry of external affairs (MEA), in response to the NHRC notice, has informed that radio collars have been removed from 12 out of 18 students in Tri Valley University in California, US and the same are expected to be removed from the remaining students very soon," a statement said on Tuesday.
Taking suo motu cognizance of media reports alleging human rights violation of the students who were victims of visa fraud, the commission had issued a notice to MEA through its secretary on February 7 calling for a report in the matter.
"The ministry has emphasized that the students were in the US on valid visas or authorizations and the investigations being conducted by the US authorities pertain to violation of visa conditions relating to class attendance, residence and work," the statement said.
"The Indian government has strongly protested with the US government the clamping of radio collars on the ankles of Indian students of Tri Valley University," it added.
A communication from Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao on the issue said that India had strongly protested radio collars as unacceptable, demanding should be removed immediately. "We have also conveyed that we expect the US government to take steps to prevent such universities from exploiting foreign students," Rao said.
Nearly 1,500 Indian students affected by the sham US university face the prospect of deportation unless they can secure admission to another school to maintain their visa status. Out of them, 18 Indian students were radio-tagged to prevent their fleeing.
