After the US authorities closed down the Tri-Valley University on charges of immigration fraud and thousands of Indian students facing deportation, it has come to light that two consultants Anji Reddy and Ram Krista Karra from Hyderabad were behind the scam.
The NRI cell of the state government has gathered specific information about people and companies from AP involved in the scam.
It was found that the university had appointed two consultants for the entire South Asian region and interestingly, both were from Hyderabad. While the first is ABS Consultancy located in Vanasthalipuram, the other is IAEC Consultants Pvt. Ltd. located in Narayanaguda.
The NRI cell also found out that of the total 18 members on the Board of the TVU administration team, six were from Andhra Pradesh.
Educational consultants said that low fee structure and work permit from Day-1 had lured many students from Andhra Pradesh to opt for TVU.
The police are likely to investigate the role of ABS Consultancy and IAEC Consultants Pvt. Ltd. in the Tri-Valley University immigration fraud.
