New York, Feb 13: Indian foreign minister SM Krishna held the bat for the duped Indian students of California based Tri-Valley University in United States. Now, Krishna asked US to absorb the students in other universities. The minister also requested US not to victimise the poor students.

"It is necessary they should be absorbed into other universities in the United States and allowed to pursue their studies," stated Krishna.

"The student who came in good faith, they should not be victimized," claimed Krishna while attending a meeting in New York on Sunday, Feb 13.

India backtracks on "sham university" in US

The minister met the students and assured them full safety and promised them more help.

According to a federal complaint filed in a California court in Jan 2011, the University helped foreign nationals illegally acquire immigration status.

The university is said to have 1,555 students. As many as 95 percent of these students are Indian nationals, the complaint said.

Duped students were radio-tagged that caused considerable mental trauma and angering parents and relatives of the students back home.

However, two students were relieved of the humiliating tags last week.
