HYDERABAD: It seems there is no end to the ordeal of Indian students seeking admission in American universities. The United States of America (USA) has deported six more Telugu students, who arrived at Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA) late on Sunday. They all were deported from the JFK International Airport in New York City. 

The students were detained by the US Homeland Security officials and grilled for more than four hours. Students alleged that they were kept locked in enquiry rooms for more than 24 hours for questioning. The US officials did not even allow them to have food and water. With cancelled visas, they were forced to catch an immediate flight and return to Hyderabad.

When asked about the details of their admission in US universities, the students refused to talk to the media. The parents also were tight-lipped.

According to officials at the RGIA, none of these students were travelling to join the controversial Northwestern Polytechnic University and Silicon Valley University.
