Canada to deport 700 Indian students as visa documents found to be fake

The Canadian Border Security Agency (CBSA) has issued deportation notices to over 700 Indian students whose admission offer letters to educational institutions were found to be fake.

Speaking to over phone from Toronto, Chaman Singh Baath said that after passing +2, around 700 students applied for study visas through Education Migration Services, Jalandhar, headed by one Brijesh Mishra. These visa applications were filed from 2018 to 2022.

Mishra charged between Rs 16 to 20 lakhs from each student for all expenses including admission fees at Humber College, a premier institute. Air ticket and security deposit were not included in the payment to the agent.

Bath said that when he and other students landed in Toronto and were on their way to Humber College, Mishra received a telephone call informing him that all seats in the courses offered to him were filled and that he would have to wait until the next one began. Will happen. Semester after 6 months or else they can get admission in any other college and secure time. However, he refunded his Humber College fees, making the students believe in his genuineness.

As per Mishra’s advice, unsuspecting students approached another college, about which little was known, and took admission in the available 2-year diploma courses. The classes started and after the completion of the course the students got the work permit. Upon becoming eligible for permanent resident status in Canada, students, as per rules, submit the relevant documents to the Immigration Department.

Bath says: “The problem started when the CBSA checked the documents on the basis of the visa granted to the students and found the admission offer letter to be fake. The deportation notice was issued after giving an opportunity of being heard to all the students.”

In response to a question, Bath replied that the agent very cleverly did not sign our visa application files himself, but made each student sign them to show that the student was a self-employed person without hiring the services of any agent. Was the applicant. This was done deliberately by Mishra as he had forged the documents.

CBSA officials were no longer accepting the claims of innocence of the “victims” as there was no evidence to prove that Agent Mishra had prepared and arranged all the documents.

The CBSA was also disapproving of the failure of the Canadian visa and airport officials who issued the visas and allowed them entry to verify the authenticity of all documents.
