About 700 students of Indian origins face the possibility of deportation as the authorities have detected discrepancies in their ‘admission offer letters’ to educational institutions of the country. These students have been handed over letters of deportation from the Canadian Border Security Agency.
According to reports, these students had applied for study visas via the Education Migration Services located in Jalandhar led by one Brijesh Mishra. Apparently, he has charged more than Rs 16 lakh per student for all the expenses which included the admission fees to Humber College. This amount however did not include the tickets and necessary security deposits.
These students had gone to Canada in the 2018-19 session for studies. The fraud came to light when these students applied for permanent residence in Canada. When the admission offer letters were scrutinised, the CBSA detected the problem and that the visas were allotted based on fake documents.
Reports mentioned that most of these students had already completed their studies. Some even got work permits and gained work experience with the documents. The problem came to light only when they applied for residency. This fraud is being called the first of its kind and the result of the huge number of applicants for education in Canada.
