IRavi Vemuri, vice-president of Andhra Pradesh Non-Resident Telugu (APNRT) society, said that US immigration and customs enforcement was planning more undercover operations t appears (from documents with TOI) that US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials decided to deport Saritha because of her ambiguous answers over attendance. According to them, while she claimed she attended classes at least once a week, she could not provide travel documents to support her claim. Saritha was staying in one part of the US and claimed she flew to Michigan (where the fake university is located) each time. Also, CBP authorities found a certificate of attendance in her possession that stated she had met the required 80% attendance, even as the student herself later confessed she hadn’t. In a subsequent query she also vaguely said that she had physically visited the premises only 5-6 times.
