Fake varsity: 2 Indians sent to detention centre
Students would be released only after they furnish a bond of $8,000 to 20,000.

New Delhi: Two Indian students duped by a "sham" American university and forced to wear radio tags were on Tuesday sent to a detention centre in the US after they complained about the movement monitoring device tied to their legs.

The two students of the now-shut California-based Tri Valley University, whose identity is not known immediately, would be released only after they furnish a bond of USD 8,000 to 20,000, according to information reaching in New Delhi.

Earlier in the day, the Indian government lodged a strong protest with the US Embassy here over certain "unacceptable" comments made by an American official on tagging of Indian students in California after which the Embassy expressed regrets.

US Deputy Chief of Mission Donald Lu expressed regrets over the comments by Juliet Wur, Public Affairs Officer at the US Consulate in Hyderabad, when Jawed Ashraf, Joint Secretary (Americas) in the External Affairs Ministry, called him, sources said.

Wur had told reporters in Hyderabad that tagging was a "hip and happening" thing and wondered why Indians were agitated over it.
