Karnal, July 22

The US Government has deported 36 more youths of the state, who were allegedly sent there by immigration agents on the pretext of false promises.

It is the fourth group of youths deported by the US Government. Earlier, 158 youths of the state were deported after the outbreak of Covid. With the fresh arrival, the number of deported youths has reached 194 of the state.

The Special Investigation Team (SIT), which was constituted by the state government to probe such cases, will register more FIRs in this regard. So far, the SIT has registered 270 FIRs this year and also investigating 45 cases of 2018-19. The SIT has arrested 147 immigration agents and recovered Rs 58 lakh from them.

“In all, 36 more youths have been deported by the US Government on Tuesday and they arrived at the Amritsar airport. The deportees have been kept in a quarantine centre at Geeta Institute, Kanipla, Kurukshetra. We will register cases once their complaints are received,” said Bharati Arora, Karnal Range IG and SIT incharge.

Meanwhile, the SIT probe into the previous cases revealed that the youths had travelled from India to the US with the help of travel agents, who had charged high fees, promising them their dream destination. These youths were routed through air, road, jungle and water. They were arrested when they entered into the US illegally. — TNS
