Six more stu­dents ar­rested in the visa-fraud case were granted bail and re­leased from a de­ten­tion cen­tre in Cal­i­for­nia on Fri­day. A team of lawyers were put to­gether to rep­re­sent the In­dian stu­dents, in­clud­ing the eight re­cruiters from AP and Te­lan­gana, re­ports Ujwal Bom­makanti

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.
